#One Postpone the thought of a handshake Or a hug Forget the future for a moment Actively narrow the horizon From a line to a dot A full stop That begins and ends only today. Let the sun set May it rise tomorrow Hope for much Expect less Need other things Things nearer to you Eat only what is here Love everyone that’s not Love and let love a lot.
#Two The single biggest Lip sealed, censored Soundless Unspoken Forbidden All consuming All or Something and nothing Invisible Inexistent When does an unspoken truth become a secret When does a kept secret become guilty Held forever Like a breath
#Three What good does it do If we build a tree In the middle of a town Surrounded by traffic, noise and fumes Suffocated in sound Its roots poke and protrude the pipes under the ground Interrupting existing life Trying to live alongside All that is alive Is it still an act of love If it can barely breath If it might not grow If it isn’t chosen To flourish and thrive All green earth Who am I to plant it here In this dirt To decide
#Four Waiting is the game with you Whether you will or won’t You would’ve said if I had waited My impatience impaled your intent Your cautiousness is never cruelty but it cuts the same A will is just words without deed
