After that winter      it’s been a while

but the rains came back


At home in another weather


The problem is      you

is what I love most      can’t be seen


Run a fingertip up      the spores clinging fernside

Soil crushed leaves and salt of life      I know I’d uncover

if I could get close enough


Wild mushrooms vanish as quickly as they appear

magic of a day changing hands


You pass me      a form      housing song unspeakable

I don’t need to know

your shirt size      your preferred mode of transportation


It builds up in me like bloom      song I can’t unhear

Tied to what nests under your skin
