work in progress wednesday #18
(for my brother Dylan on the day he moved into college four years ago, and gifted to him last weekend at his graduation)
It's kismet One day we will understand what this is all for. Transforming before my eyes higher you climb as your voice declines with the passing of time that I try to ignore I think maybe it was you stretched across the sky as we reached the final inning that rainbow outside the superstore glistening I know every end is a beginning. I fold your clothes and smooth your linen. If there’s ever a minute deep in the cave of your mind that’s timid if you shout in airwaves across state lines or find yourself standing stuck between green highway signs I’ll be in the soons and the sometimes whispering always through the pines It is here, brother, already. It was within you all this time.
