and when did we know

the world could be this

lush

and full

of thorns?


as rich

as thistle blossom

milk


as light

as morning sun


and if i’d never felt

the wind before

would i still know

why the trees

erupt into shivers


shake themselves

until they splinter


like i

am shaken

pieces lost

and crying out

to faces watching

behind glass

asking


why don’t

you just

stop dancing?


.


why does the wreckage

leave us wishing

to still be dark

and small


curled

into places

where the serpents sleep


drinking venom

but safe

from storms


.


why does

some smaller part of me

believe i could go back

from breathing

color

I know this is a nice poem, but

I'll have to read it a few times to

better understand it. :)
