i dreamt we were two suns following each other thru unending night

d.

she asked me for a story

so i told her of our father

truths too numerous to lie.

 

with fewer words

we spoke them all.

 

along this journey

kneeling by a spring

reflecting on the sky

 

without ambition

beyond warmth.

 

some call this love or fire.

 

how could i slay my

friend to gain a meal.

 

knowledge became survival.

 

we are water and

you taught me well.

 

i left her only as blood

from the heart. and to

return as winter turns

to spring. the way a tree

might leave as shelter

for some bird in song.
