I keep thinking I’ll reach this spacious place.
Simple, like pancakes.
Butter drips through blue-berry stacks that
kill the drowsy plains of afternoon with dreams that shatter sheep, baa – baa – baa-ing over faltering fences.
I keep thinking it will get easy -er.
Seek and ye shall find they say.
Knock and the door shall be open.
Nothing clears into a blur of grace
like blueberry pancakes
whoring their way to something else.
We are all afraid of each other.
Maybe we should be.
