"i don't love you as if you were a rose of salt, topaz or arrow of carnations that propagate fire: i love you as one loves certain dark things, secretly, between the shadow and the soul."
-Pablo Neruda

and like the bird i found this morning
i'll lay you down
in a bucket of begonias on the side of the street
and hope your mother will come
to spoon feed you lies that
the world revolves around you.
that is, until you learn to fly
and realize
your feathers are now too big
for anyone to orbit.
