come home

Updated: Aug 4, 2023

how is this the same body that bent

at the back, en route to the moon

halted hip—lest arrival's too soon

a thought, post-relief, of Thursday

afternoon, entering the room

large and certain, small and unkind

a kiss for open eyes, open your eyes,

we're coming in, you been gone

too long, it's time to come home

grass is brown, water's green

last time you were seen smiling

was the end of a dream, found

morning frayed, suit a dull gray,

open your eyes and we'll walk away,

open your eyes and we'll walk away
