telling a story to the pine trees

as i feel my heart start to get heavy

i breathe the sound of surrounding crickets into my body

i dream a bonfire into my belly

and feel the warmth i have felt in the past

remembering laughs that ricochet and bounce and multiply

reaching into the night sky

for a wink of reassurance

that i am, i really am okay

that i’m gonna keep goin, even if dark clouds float

amongst my sways

cuz other people are dancin, twirlin, singin

right along with the pain


[Summer 2019]
