Gravity

Green Calcite

Gravity

I remember the walls.
We sure knew how
to fill a space.
Before we decided to try
an open floor plan—

Instantaneous weightlessness!

Please grab hold of something.
I need to share what I know now

about me:
I really do miss all the rooms,
the decor, and our friends!
I cannot live without gravity.

Words

You know what I think:
The words that we say
could very well be shot
back to us one day

Do I think about
tomorrow?
Life’s little invoices do
tend to arrive after
the make-or-break
moments—
have passed us by

I need to try to make
each and every word
I can consciously say
feel good both now
and even after
today

To not. look. sad.

To not. look. sad.

You are always down
after she leaves
No need to be!
Soon enough, I am sure
you could choose to miss her
once again

She will return—
and then fly away—
again. again. & again.
So, at least, do try your
damnedest, you!
to not. look. sad.
