You Said We Would Proceed


You said we would proceed, together like apples,
One as proud as the moon, the other alone at sea


Wearing a rain coat,
In hand the unsettled,
For a nest the universe in the swaying trees,
Quiet doors make for funny haircuts,
A tee shirt upended by love


Death is honest clouds,
A kitchen sink of trees, seagulls of daisies,
Between the utensils of metaphor and apocalypse,
Pressing the fairy tale toes into oceans of suns
