See You from the Dirt

The Caves or Dream

we hit the ground two years ago and
haven’t stopped crawling
since

defrocked butterflies, a teaspoon
away from drowning
in soil and rain

come lay beside me,
we will count the stars through
mud-stained eyelids

the air will bite at
our grateful collarbones
as if flight might still

take us somewhere dangerous

Also, this is a song:
