Someday Bloody Someday

5000 piece puzzle
missing one piece
the first
lost
in questions
instead of living them
playing with energy
dangerous
like love can be

someday bloody someday
infinite intimate
like hummingbird visits
flirting figure eight flutter
time stopper
as Life offers
teachable moments
in Nature

all this
to fold a little space

all this
to fold a little space

we change
we pray
in poems
like mother hands
wondering
where she went wrong
where she went right
where her dreams for you landed
when her fears for you planted

we change
we pray
in poems
like father hands
wondering
where he went wrong
where he went right
where his dreams for you landed
when his fears for you planted

secrets mastered
to protect our time
bleed into cemetery visits
and this guy
has daughter fatigue

uncheckable daughter
in a box-checking world
disappointing
like unchecked boxes can be

hair, body, clothes
long, thin, femme

someday bloody someday
i’ll write prayers
beneath this one
fly them into palms
meant for loving
and all the world’s heartache
would bow to beauty

behold
the greatest story
ever loved
