something_s we make


For Anon

As long as I can grab them

with open hands—

rough skin and fingertips


those words—

their smallest little parts

and their supreme promises—

there will be pneuma

expanding my lungs and

loosening my tongue

to set it free, the wild.

If there is no movement

then everything freezes

and freezes forever

in these archaic winds.
