the coolness of untainted air

seeps deep into your lungs,

as glacial peaks and frozen lakes

become your ladder rungs,

reaching new heights - expanding your sight,

a horizon, soon undone,

with visible breath and stolen speech -

eye-level with the Sun.
climb on.

the bloom and shape

and way you grow,

evoking blush and calming woes.

balancing both the delicate and bold -

reminding admirers:

to mind how they hold.
always you - all ways the rose.

warm hands fingerprinting crisp glass.
oscillating breaths -
between clear and opaque.
a calming condensation.
an understanding of balance.
no matter the cold - your radiance endures, sweet child.

your atoms collide

even as you sit - you are:

a mass potential
you are more than a battery or a snowball or fodder for a rube goldberg machine - your energy is intentional.

be like the seed:

fall to the ground…

and soil yourself.

this is the pathway to growth.

tryptophan and cream

gently whispering, “goodnight”

be even. be whole.

vice, vice, vice, vice, vice,

vice, vice vice, vice, vice, vice, vice,

vice, vice, vice - no guilt.
