forgiveness like this

what to do with a falling heart?

count the rings.    how many moons?
look here, holding up my finger hands,

I’m this many old.

look for a tree that’s ready to fall.
good company is always good.

I’ll appreciate the gulls in sky
outside my window, the closed blinds.

listen.    that’s where we land.

this side of grace.

is that me?
