Lightning can’t fix us, smoke fills lungs faster 

than a blink holds.

See? I know every senseless thing.

Compulsion closed her in,

echoes of a popped branch and dust gathering

heart are parroted back

swaddled by arms, firm signs that there were helmed fierce

early hugs and bygones caring that tucked

itself between the vanishing

now spare the time to ask in simplicity

call me child again
