Falling Into Your Eyes – for CKW – poem

Big Red Heart

Falling Into Your Eyes

                   for CKW

Two black birds fly together

as if the shadow and the object

were coming to the same place


A tongue wags from the stump

as if the song of presence

that lament brings speaks

after so much silence


A white star flashes on a dark blue

directly over the heart

and you say

                   who will come to us

                   who will give us solace.
