I want to kiss you

I want to kiss you like there will be no tomorrow
like the stars will fall and the world stop spinning
I want to kiss you like the sun will reach out and melt our wings
be brave and fly to your lips anyway
I want to wrap myself in the very matter binding the smallest
part of you as if it is the only way I can stay together
I want to kiss you



Upon waters mind

casting care like weights overboard

and words like paper airplanes

through a tumultuous sky

we merry merciless mangrove souls

float in the wake of humanities

bravery and lack there of

to find the depth of meaning

and make sense of

it all.
