272–What If

its colder now the window’s open
no longer closed tight to keep out
3 digit heat the sounds of cars and
birds leap in though the stupor of
sleep but mostly i lay for a while
in your arms when i come conscious
why don’t you just discover instead
of spending so much time reinvented
she says to me from this cozy safe
place in the shadow of her wing
humm i think now that’s an easy
way to live kind of fun too not
trying to revise the world
we have such guilt these days
thinking we have destroyed
our gorgeous home but what
if we’re just here to adore you?
