Never Before or Again

I’ll speak

star bursts

to birds,

and sing my hopes to insects

 

I’ll know when it’s time to sleep

by the weight of the atmosphere,

the ground.

 

I’ll forget words,

remember my heart,

sit in ghost silence,

and meditate with stones.

 

I’ll learn the language of

rabbit

deer fawn

 

I’ll call hawk,

and look on night without suspicion.

 

Nowhere else than earth has embraced me

my bones will embrace in return.
