Catch Some Wide Eye

If You Want Your Dinner, Then Clean Off That Rag!


dragging feet in the dust
circling around countries i can’t name
i draw a foreign map with the soles of my shoes
carving out rivers where the world has run dry

the earth is thirsty for something

brushing air through hair
weaving around souls it can’t understand
nature writes a love letter with the tip of its hand
leaving out words where the holes can show through

i am hungry for something
