A serene beach with calm waters beneath a cloudy sky.

& what if i want to let it settle in my hand and transfer it,
coiling loosely around your
pulsing veins.

ochre ringing in your
heartbeat, livid with memory

you remember the grounding pinch of my stuttering, a canyon between each word
can you see that all i need is to clothespin my distilled
emotion and let the
flapping in the wind be your roots

please accept the silence.
it’s only
expanding the unexplored area of our tide.
