Poem 1

waking up for all to mention
what destiny's curve
and punch the barrier
as we say loose
with gorgeous mouth
knows the calling of flexible
from birth gifting
a new name
on the wind or its center
far falling from rigid
bless in the junction of absolute nowhere

as we're the telling we say
gratitude the exposed rules
imagining our belonging
where mortals waves
the golden expect
one abandon in the river
quick the dignity of the push
enough in trust with a word
