LIFE WHAT’S IT LIKE?
like sunday, like rain, like footsteps, handshakes
like horizon, sunset, like desire, dread
like sleep walking, like day dreams
like fog, like faith, rocking chairs, bed sheets
like bread, like dusty roads, nameless trails
like silence, shadows, crystal skies
like sparrows, swans, like hope, futility
like yes, no, like confusion, clarity
like planets, like poems, like fact, fiction
like nothing, everything, like storms, like loneliness
like laughter, like commas, periods, question marks
like desperation, madness, holiness, ordinary days
like drought, floods, like wine, like water, like watching, waiting
like rising, falling, like spinning, spiraling, like gasping, grieving
like weeks, months, years of long goodbyes.
