“Someone You Could Get to Know”

22 Feb

“Someone You Could Get to Know”

I guess centuries passed behind us

and all the litanies are true

follows before us as heaven lopes

behind a toothy hound

while winds do howl

the snowy roses and all that peaked

a perforation smiles back to sleep

though holes in this wilderness

too much the shallows

holler “dinner time!”

if only for an owl

did rode, did breed

the double-breasted horse did steed

and rolled up in your apple walnut bed

we’re here instead

someone you should’ve paused

gotten the chance to know.
