felt an urgency
beneath our skin to reconnect
and feathers
blew in the wind, to upstate georgia
where mountains were thrust from their foundations
into a sea beneath the largest glacier on Venus
"forget a humbled existence, and be cast into seascapes,"
she said, but
including i,
was unaware of your arrival and i began to feel
that same urgency to check letters off,
pound on buttons,
release it into airwaves,
just to see your face after months!
just to spin in circles beside the Hudson!
just to, O God,
be the most glad being, and bones shivering from the love felt
from miles between, O God!
a celebratory unison
to a shared ocean, to an hour away, to, O! a gladness felt: in artistry.
