“Do you know," Peter asked, "why swallows build in the eaves of houses? It is to listen to the stories.” ~ J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan


march fall down

sometime the pretty fall down.
i speak that in jodie foster's nell voice, i use my hands, i am puzzled
and i run for cover; the sky is falling in flowers and raindrops
and pretty fall down and the storm flatten it
and flatten it more
and it pile all up in the shadows of trees
and then more fall and i can't stop it.
i just watch it fall and watch the wind pull the petals apart.
i say for the rain to stop, but it don't, you know,
it just keep coming.
