nameplates

Moving on or going back 

Where you came from

To me, means you mainly traveled 

With a breakup or a breakdown 

I suppose . .

Your journals, moist from winter 

And in your writing I find this

A proccesional of moving lights 

Father waited for me in gray England

Separating bellbirds from panic

I write back, a little more bent

Than the trees in your backyard 

Sir, Change is going faster 

Half sea – Half land 

Give me your hand

If you trust the fertility 

Above your nailbed

Watch your daughter sit

Behind the limestone 

With buckles on her shoes 

Seeing how “the picturesque”

Outlives its meaning

Outlives, you and me

Aqila, may you find comfort in these words; I think of your grief and only hope time is making it somewhat a little better. When you love like this it is very hard to separate dreams from reality.

My father always saw pink hues . .

Love your friend 

– M
