sandman

i feel you sister
something real has passed between these hands
i stare down at where it should have landed
and shake my head
for the ground is bare
and it is the middle of day
i should be able to see what is not there
but it has evaporated before touching the earth below my feet
my arms hold everything that can be
my arms hold everything that can be
my arms hold everything that can be
carried
