Simplicity

 

I want to write you of simplicity.

The sky, the land, and me.

Ribbons distinguished,

The light and the dark,

Candles extinguished,

The quell and the spark. And the tree.

And the sea.

The Ides of March.

The color of pi.

Singing of stars and oatmeal,

Of comfortable chairs.

The music of typewriters, attics, and stairs.

The sharing of slippers and slipping of shares.

Electrical outlets.

Oceanous inlets.

Come rootbeer and dusk.

Coconut husk.

Come see.

The language and fabric of you

And me.

-M.M.
