Maybe today would be fun
if instead of fighting
we fuck
or walk under waterfalls
with heavy hearts
and whisper in each other’s ears
about eyes and Oms and odds
and fall forever
into a faster failing plan
involving paper palaces
and play-money.

Maybe today would be fun
if we call ourselves seeds
and count flowers in the forest
instead of earth’s faults
and find common ground
from which we’ve both sprung
and lower onto leaves
in surrender
to the Sun.
