the tree of another life

How did i forget

the falling darkness

the gleaming flakes

that cover places

i once laid

every blade of grass

turned down

in a deep

and endless

pit of brown.

 

moved by long fingers

on cold lips

and the taste of ginger

lemon tea

– warmth came over me

on a hallow tree

we carved J and E

forever.

 

forever.

in between then and eternity

i let it go

stuck in bardo

you escaped from me

yet i know

we will always have that tree.
