There’s a calming feral drive in me illustrating every new day with soft embedded grasp that leaves me
In a home so far removed from your concrete-laden night—that endless splash of light
That etches the sky where you live in such vivid traces of vacant
Now see with eyes refocused on anything other than this
Keep me slow—focused on the inside—forego the outside
I need slow
(An imploration to dance)
I feel landlocked in the best way—bereft of misstep inherent in that city by the sea
And that splash of light you chase
You precipitate bad company
There’s a calm inside that you will never place—where native landmarks beat back static iconography and that shrill, piercing light you claim
You precipitate bad company
And I can wait, I can wait, I can wait another quarter century swept through a blemished, modest tapestry
A depiction of unburdened, lonely country
For myself
Of all the things I could’ve wrest from earth, seclusion—rested, slowing—holds most worth
And I’ve said it before: oh, it holds me
This feral calming drive in me keeps me landlocked
I feel comfort, and it’s holding—a
gust so quiet in accordance with a rising never leaving, as it soothes me, as it keeps me landlocked

You're breathing out loud in an odd way. ... more
