simple messages

simple messages
are easily co-opted
whether we mean to

or not – carve out the space to
interrogate intentions

in the east village,

in the east village,
a simple pleaplease return
stones – as if each one

carries meaning, a story,
the dull weight of its travels

i reach out to you

i reach out to you
from the past, in central time –
did you happen to

catch the sunrise? is it true
that the future will be brighter?

i want to break it
to you slowly so that each
syllable lingers,
sinks in. i want to

there is no more
fear, only trust –
the known knowns
