Crawling Water

Don’t be mean
Igniting bridges you don’t know you need
Each bridge heads somewhere
All connecting lives to lives to lives
Rope and wood, don’ts and shoulds
Left you crawling across a river
He tries to help and gets thrown
To wolves that do not care for own
Do you believe?
Things I’ve seen
Let me speak, to help you

Tap tap, wake up
I’ll fill your cup
Leaves fluttering without you
Is it past time? Too soon?
Photograph words laughing, was that you?
I’d like to swing by
For a patio and that sky
A shower, a rinse, before fingerprints
Hands and silver til quiver
