Friday's Poem from Tumblr

the world
does not need
any thing
i have
to offer
the wind
with my words
the sea
my reflection
the sky
is an anvil
i break
my fists
and one day
the warm wet lips
of the earth
will swallow
whatever remains
of me
just as eagerly
as i
eat a peach
in august
forgetting i was
ever here
so if
you approach me
do not offer
your name
or ask mine
and we
will never
be burdened
by each other’s
that is
a lot to ask
of anyone
as fleeting
as a dream
as we
i will look
for you
when i
close my eyes.
