don’t read

don’t read.  wash your face.
don’t read.  feed the cat.
don’t read.  imagine words.

don’t speak.  pour the milk.
don’t speak.  turn the bowl.
don’t speak.  find words that came first.

find the poem no one wrote.
leave it be.  fallow heart.
make what you’re blind to see.

make breakfast.  make sleep.
offer it to the moon.
or maybe me.

write.  write more.  you have to have
enough to throw yourself all away.
