Heart comma

 

Tape the red glass together.

Memory and dream have the same mother.

The womb is full of water.

Press play and record.

 

If I had to define it I’d say:

Love is a confetti splash from the window.

It has every color of light in the spectrum.

I only had to see it once to know.

 

Replicate and activate with oil

pastel. Put it in a frame.

Write a song on the harmonium.

A million pieces from the maker

can meld.

 

Or I’d put it this way:

 

Here is a box

with silence inside.

It's for you.
