Kid Comet

Comet
Come get me
Streaming, silvery
Steal me
Garland-green
Wrap ‘round me
Shed we — now, together, we
Icy un-necessities

Comet
Please take me
Sunward, bring me
Show me
Civilization dawn
Asking, I, of thee
All the while, power me
Now to my true home

What if I

Of dust, breath, and rib

Too, picked you

— Obliterated matter, and ground-bound

And breathed

Christ-like fellowship

Into you

Stood by your side

And we walked together, thence?

Knowing

Know you are loved
No matter what
No matter the blurry bygone dreams for Paris
Whether withering and feeling dry-dead
Wondering what of this salt and this sea
Pensive be
Whether you love me
I love you

Inspirational credit: “…Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.” -Jeremiah 31:3

‘19

…didnt wish
to intimidate you

it must
mean you
weren’t the you
you
said
you
were
but weren’t

ah, but we were younger
the wishing me, stupid, I was

the stupid you, wishing you were the you you said you were but weren’t
