about

on days like these when all the trees
swell up green I’m on my knees
and a disease like winter’s freeze
flares up in me I cannot breathe

I’m still stuck on the last four words you said
I toss them all around my head
until they’re nothing but an old book I’ve read
I sit helplessly, upright in my bed

I know you are
an open book if I just read between the lines
a smile could spark
the perfect word If I just opened up my eyes

I’m still staring out the new classroom window
consulting with the oldest souls I know
and they urge me to open and let go
of a field once green–muddied and enclosed

as I sink into your honest grey-blue eyes
I watch you wear them like a cheap disguise
but beneath a stained-glass shade there lies
a blue too true for seas or skies

I know you are
an open book if I just read between the lines
a smile could spark
the perfect word If I just opened up my eyes
