sky jewels

I watched as your pulse moved the tender skin between your ankle and heel.

You are alive, from the shin down- at least. I’m not always convinced-

of your amusement with this life. You tend to flutter from paltry to sky-jewels. The dry heat-

created moisture droplets on your perch- a family trait that I see in the oldest living to the newest daughter. Yours.

As you slipped into your reverie- the red ant crawled across your second toe. You jumped-

and for a moment, your heart began beating— again.

Don’t forget to drink more water. Flush out the toxin. Life sustaining. Just believe me- I will raise you up-

no airs.

I love you.
