Become the Landscape

When you become the landscape,

you sit here quietly, peacefully, serenely, joyfully.

Not a joy that’s a feeling,

like an emotion or something

A peaceful joy

that’s in the pulse of the rivers and sinews

The red and blue of veins

interchanging all over the place - happily.

No Sense

I love things that don’t make sense

Like trees


And the woman in stilettos pushing the baby carriage.
