in the nature shop

 

                                i

 

the baby is well dressed And naked

in a country of blink STARS

it touches A brain and the envelopes OPEN 

the navel gazers huddle

Under a Tree LOST

 

you are left in the nature Shop

Drinking from A cracked river

the spider Feeds you honey

you eat your own BLUE skin

 

AND know continuity is hopeless

from Orchards

from things that bump into EACH other

Earth heals only TENdrils

of what you Might FEEL

 

the ocean RESTS happiness

 

                             ii

 

some days placid are the same And

the same are similar 

and NAMING

on the blank EARth

on A blank page

 

each THEN the blankness of things

since flash by 

and we try TO gather them together

found in old places and Stores

selling second

 

hand as New

to the new to the CHANGES

searching for One selves

And themselves managing the sun

and it IS a beautiful

 

                             morning ORange light

green holds your hand

and Special paths

Located under your SKIN
