to be under the

to be under the
laser focus of a sandhill
crane during her colts’

feeding time is a misjudgment –
hightail it out of her sight

you and i are two

you and i are two
maybe three folds away from
becoming something

recognizable – a crane,
a balloon, a boat – weightless

i am unfolding

i am unfolding
sorrow, an elaborate
crane.

i am
unfolding the
symmetry to study
each line, each
road to abandonment.

i
am unfolding four
corners to reveal
the choreography
of an ache
.

i am tempted
to ball it up, to
rub out the
lament –

but for now, i
concentrate on
unfolding
and unfolding
and unfolding
.
