Beneath You Drop
after Jeremy Radin

I guess
a lot of the time

It depends on the weather
As do I
& you

When I get home
what I want most
is water

How does this impact my
relationship to fire

if at all

My body fades
over miles
& still I need people even

if I can’t

I didn’t
think about ghosts
today

I guess
I am more than my fog

I am allowed
to be in the air       around

the spaces I  already

am
