i promised you too many clouds
& now i do not have enough to last this week.
do you remember parking on the side of the wooded road
& asked the trees for directions?
they said, "come here" & i told you
i wasn't ready to become brush. inside the waterfall
a voice is always talking & saying i need to move on.
it's inside the waterfall so i can't just reach
& shut it off. deluge. wound.
the waterfall is a girlfriend & a hitchhiker
& a god. often you speak to me when you're no where at all
just to say something like "do it for me."
