The Two Cornered Clouds
I would ask myself about the 2 cornered clouds,
persisting to remain awake for an hour
With 4 legs the size of my fingers.
Can I give myself to the steady sea of parenting
A colour I have never b r e a t h e d before................................ till now
they shake out the folds layering bright projections
quietly from there.
Ancestral heartbeat of warp and weft
a waterbottle full of salmon sun
A double knot s l e e e e e e e e e e e e e e p s amongst the books
Smell of their sleeps
