spring clean

i would climb up to your room to wake you.
we would sit side by side in the vast vacant space of your room and stare for a bit.
and then you'd start putting things up on the wall from the packing.

but the camera has no interest in embodied space.

we will stay the strangers we were meant to stay.

i just spotted my newest fears.
i gave them words.
i'm ramming them head on.
it's easy,i can see them now.
words are good for something.

Today is Sunday

Today is Sunday
For the first time they took me out into the sun today
And for the first time in my life I was aghast
that the sky is so far away
and so blue
and so vast
I stood there without a motion.
Then I sat on the ground with respectful devotion
leaning against the white wall
Who cares about the waves with which I yearn to roll
Or about strife or freedom or my wife right now.
The soil,the sun and me..
I feel joyful and how.
