Poetry: -⍳T- by Percy Anton

T-

by Percy Anton

sometimes
love
is a sandwich
a cool bottle of water
a quiet dappled space

listen

poP
SNAP
hissSSss
fountain?
of life?

listen

i’m sorry
that umbrella
never was for you
that promise
was all guise
all lure
up
up the ragged
rugged
mountain

charging cliff stiff with belief
to be staff dash throne thrown
thru ash
reign beaus
unto the sand
miles below

listen

sometimes
love
is a hand offered
a face that glows
like sun glint ocean
that knows rushes, all air, deafening
and true gravity
and grit

sometimes
