Greensleeves melody

Greensleeves melody
echoes throughout holidays
stalking my children

Awake to chainsaws

Awake to chainsaws
after dreams of barren parks
cue anxiety

You're searching deeply

You're searching deeply
my heart feels undressed gently
eyes closed to your gaze

If birds knew words

If birds knew words
as sun rises each day
I'd hear headlines

Like some trick of light

Like some trick of light
broken white lines on blue sky
waves of Corellas

Little victories

Little victories
lurking under piling angst
hidden for later

Microscopically

Microscopically
your cells are in my body
you are part of me

This thick crust gives way

This thick crust gives way
revealing comfort and taste
to deliver you

When I'm sliced open



When I'm sliced open
you fill me with wholesome love
butter me with salves
