she may be young but she only likes old things
Let it go - the
smashed word broken
open vow or
the oath cracked length
wise - let it go it
was sworn to
let them go - the
truthful liars and
the false fair friends
and the “boths” and
“neithers” - you must let them go they
let all go - the
big small middling
tall bigger really
the biggest and all
things - let all go
so comes love.
I need to emerge from tiny time-stopping moments; I need to exist inside dawn’s light. I need to give in to the presence of everything humble, boundlessly sincere and extraordinarily terrifying.
I have sculpted your body from the dust on the doorknob.
I hoarded your name in my mouth for months.
I’ve been saving so many words for you.
My throat is a beehive pitched into the river. Look!
Look how long my love can hold its breath.
