hello. what do you need?
do you seek surprise
in the same stride
as symmetry?
you good with danger?
can you be bothered
and accompanied?
do you accept flow
and an unknown
emotion as a
welcome stranger?
these alien tools
rubbing your shoulders
and sleeping
in your head-
can they be seen instead
as well worn gifts
that could create shifts
in your ombré
in your tender below
in your shadow?
when your cool becomes hot
your calm not
do you crave
to stand in dark?
yet not let any part
of it
into
onto
next to
your soul?
if you expect life
to keep happening
to keep unfolding
helping and
shouldering
even after you have
tapped out
the rhyme scheme,
what might that
mean?
we all die,
but could words
help you
to love yourself
to death?
and then
help you hold
onto your wholeness
and breath
and every best
part of it
that is
worth
seeing
craving
saving.
even while
you are suspended
in the moment
before the
moment you are
noted
noticed
supported.
