–for RMR

You have named me, and now I cannot keep silent.

A letter, a scent, a departure.

This is all it took for you to remember.

Through me, this song moves out and over,

adjusting to shoulders and hips.

In your naming I have found a new

hollowed-out landscape in which to place

budding wings, attach them to my feet, and

in a singular breath begin to feel lighter and lighter.

I am your red dawn hardening with texture

as though your own fingers have grazed

and slid throughout its thick color, like a

child with paint and empty white paper.

The places in which I have already been,

I cannot retrace. Together, a vision seen

through only one set of eyes, now enlarged

by whole experience. In this name you have

made me known, you have seen beyond eyeless

centuries, given to me a hand in which we

barley have touched finger to finger

through endless spaces.
