Step out with quiet feet—fresh faced in spite of the years and keeping with edges that grow (I’m too polite, maybe you’re too brief) in simple limits that I respect
Look like an animal seven days a week
And so I connect with small steps that carry the morning
Alone is best charted removed from the unknown
Alone, in want of nothing but a slow—familiar and kept close
Sleep-strewn hills endear a sort of lonesome
Sleep-strewn hills fashion a place
Where I lay, where I breathe, where the root confounds and confides in me
Where I lay, where I breathe, and the moment’s sustained in every end of me
Arrange every path to keep my common ground
I’m furloughed, I’m bare, and I’m still around
(All praise be to von Bohlen)
