Cover me in the pines I’ve always scraped—the soil that can’t recede
The wind will ease the forestry in cadence with me
(I’m still very scared for me)
Everything I’ve known keeps
with everything
I believe in coyotes that meet night breeze and scamper on, snout scraping the earth
I could never leave the smell of the dirt and the notes that resound against the bark of the trees
(Ethereal chant signaling Mother
Flora’s unwavering indebtedness to Rookie Town)
Like sap I’ll find my calling in a lull
(Rookie Town echoing Mother Flora’s gratitude—an indication of mutual understanding and respect)
My fields will wake the same—regardless of the clouds
The lull remains—give me no way out
I still believe
I still believe in coyotes that meet night breeze, scamper on, snouts scraping the earth
I still believe in…
(Unversed in what it means to be held by anything beyond the grass that waves me home)
I still believe in everything I’ve
ever known
And my world is scaled smaller, but scaled nonetheless
I’m nonetheless
(I still believe)
(All praise be to Stipe)

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