Bare Feet, Verses, Earth

Who drank the last

Of the halos? Deliberately made it rain?

Stole old purses from graffiti

Elbows?

Who lit fire to the last of the rocks?

Knowing very well that this storm

Is bare feet, verses, earth.

Like fireflies

Opening doors,

The spring wind

Counting knives.

I adhere to berry and branch,

Leaf, sunlight in the arteries,

Theater wire and the stars.

    1. Thanks Used Life. I was glad this line came to me. I like that it is stripped down, while having a chance to sum up a lot of meaning for me. And maybe a little bit of a pun on verses/versus, but in a good way. Hopefully it works. I’m glad you liked it.
