I PASS YOU AN EMPTY SKY

I just
love when
I pass you
an empty
sky

and you
spin it

then
hand me
back

a fistful
of stars.

ENTANGLEMENT 1

You reach through
this spiral of settling light

and touch
a drifting,
mislaid piece
of dust.

You lift it

and somewhere else
in time and space,

something in me
rises.

ENTANGLEMENT 2

On this ground I plant
a seed.

I lay by this mound
of peat moss and earth
and await a garden,

I sense a wind.

In another realm
you step on a bed
of cracked clay
and smell peonies.

You breathe

and a trace
of hyacinth bursts
from the night.
