Love is an Easy Write - Dec. 25, 2022

when we’re rocketing skyward

soaring on thermals

or even on a first-time float

two inches above the earth

because love starts with

ae failure of gravity

it breaks our connection

to the weight of the world

cracks us open

frees the lightness of

generosity and goodness

leaves the shell behind

and propels those sweet

curves of ink

a whole other challenge

is to do it while stuck

in quicksand

or a fathomless pit

its loss leaves us in a place

torn between a monk’s prayer

and the moans

of a cockroach

with many sounds

that are not even words
