the perfect poem





On audio HERE

the perfect poem
is without words


it is heard within the cries of lovers
legs entwined
like trees
limbs reaching roots
climbing vines
towards heaven


it is the sun dappled dawn
rich and vibrant
like cheeks rising

as apples, ripe

it is the laughter of children
encrypted within chalk lines on sidewalks
where no words are spoken
and no language exists

it is the heart, racing
through atriums and ventricles
pumping blood to breath

so your eyes
show laughter
through your tears after rainfall


the perfect poem
is you

perfect,
poem


it is the presence of love

and the breath of angels.
