What To Say To Rain
I would like to beat down
into the world too
& make everything growing glisten.
What to Say to Sky After a Storm
It’s too late
when the silver sun blinks awake
we already learned how to live
in our soft bodies in the wind
& dream through the shadows of rain.
What to Say to Night
Thanks for the moon. You knew
to leave a light on in the long hallway
and I believe the shadow of the Earth
that gouges it out is an accident.
What to Say to Write
There is nothing to say
the whole sky blossoms sometimes
into billows & light
& the wooden bowl of peaches on the oak table
speaks to how something
keeps on giving–we should say
if we deserve this.
