The earth loves you

Know this – the earth

loves you. Feel how

she pulls you, tumbling


down into her cherry-dark

pomegranate-rich scent

of soil ozone-steeped


to lie next her heartbeat

while lallang grasses

scratch your cheek


and entangle in your hair,

and the wind rushes

to find you


wherever you are, wailing

your name through cracks

between building, open windows,


journeying across the sea,

still salt-scented, perfume-laden,

to caress your face


and yes, even the sun

bends down to see herself

shining from your eyes


and the sky longs to fill

the empty spaces in you,

if you let him,


you who who die from lack

and burn to love something,
