a child’s hideaway

A woman stands

all alone, ready to wade

across the Milky Way

out of the depths of the willow

Sweet and sad

like love overwhelmed

with long sighs,

out of the depths of the willow

little by little

the moon appears.

Mountain leeches too

have something to say–

let’s listen
