Holding your eyes
threads of both shoes untied
and I couldn't see
your face

Pearl white skies
the fabric folds in our lives
that I couldn't help
but waste

The camera you hold
lens is open blurry pose
of windswept wood
on shores

Light is exposed
curtained windows, doors closed
hiding the night
in day

And open to the thought of present danger
in the footsteps of a
quiet passing stranger
Calmly calculate the time and space
of odd and obtuse angles
that plot out the lines to your escape
When little branches whisper
hold on to the thought that keeps you safe
