alone together

our sun rises and shines first on you

it strikes like a match

and sets fire to the world

a sea of blonde tangles

which make their way to the hearts of man

the way a great river lends itself to countless tributaries

you flow today

against the islands off the coast

a bottle of mountain dew

that gets to taste your lips

and wind

that gets to ravage your body.

the palms present their shape

and meanings giving rise to sensations

both foreign and familiar

under the shadow of your family tree

there is a place you lie

perfectly content

pleasantly sad
