to watch a fall

it can be the hardest thing

to haul a dragon from the dungeon

*

sorrowing sweetly becomes a useful practice

though the lungs will feel the impact

*

if you open your eyes during a fall

the landscape changes

 *

exotic black and white perception

like that of a still discovering little one

*

a wall, a center, a sky, and an expansion of acuity

ignition of color

*

becoming a seer of joy

need not undermine being an antenna for sensibility

*

the gravitational pull of a four legged

alluring any deadweight to a likelihood

 *

sounds of universal aliveness

adjust with capacity to breathe deeper

*

purple flowers on a vine that came from nowhere

within the vicinity of patterns next to shapes made possible by shade

*

if i watch i am able to hear the song of a girl

that is a language most beautifully mysterious and familiar
