Poem: First October

Silence the room.
Leaving the door unlocked
to starlight trees
breathing in
mountain air breeze.

And so I say goodnight
to the explosive world,
for the
lull
of rest
over your ribcage.

Sinking down to pause
our verbs
and tears
Pulsing
seeps
through bone
and cotton

Drumbeats
r  e  v  e  r  b  e  r  a  t  i  n  g
Eardrum ward

Soft soundwaves
So calmly,
steady.
Echo of soul.

So. This is what keeps you sighing.
And…
So. This is what keeps you running.
This — serene storming — life blood —

Beat beating.
Beat beating.
Beat beating.

A force that would crush the mountains.
Kiss them tenderly.
Enfold the deep.

Rhythm of red
circulating

Veins,
Arteries
flow. Slow
dance. Wind shivering
through shadowed branches,
whisper singing.

The cadence enchanting.
A new sigh.
Eyes closed.
Wide awake soul.
