like animals

Posted on Tuesday, June 12, 2012

Let us speak to ourselves
as we would
to a lover in need
to a friend in doubt
in honesty and goodness

Let us speak plainly and simply
Looking one another straight in the eye
Why not?

Let us live like animals
beneath the sun
running wild and free
without knowledge of the word
or existence
of expectation
or should

If only we could learn
from the little hearts
that beat
so close to mother moon
