Blue sky up & the touch of wind
Unwinding clouds
Yanked apart, grey underneath
White at the fringe

The sun never quiet
Grass never still
Different green over dirt
& blue from the shade
Pulled out through the sky

How many birds can I press to my chest
Before they cast a shadow over my heart
& it stays coiled in that serpent?

I am pretending to adult
Wonder if I’ll ever be beautiful enough
Will it only fill my coffee cup?

The sun never quiet
Grass never still
& shade changing shape
There is so much to discover
Like the people
Each shadow has its color

& my heart never still
& the sun never quiet
The sun never quiet
