you never see the wind blow until you are hungry
sitting outside of restaurants
people watching

until you are sitting in the audience
watching actors breathe for pace
and engagement /
then you realize you
pant for a living

you stomp brown leaves and ants for power
chew ice on chipped teeth
to recreate sensation

you know love when
you find a fortune in a forgotten pocket
the one that read, “expect company soon”
then he comes
into your back yard
and disconnects the electricity
and this is a blessing.

you never see light
until you’re in the dark
