i think sometimes 
of the thoughts you have 
and i think i know how you think 
somewhere in there 
you think like i do 
and even you 
have to admit 
not much in time has passed 
two elbows next together on a swing 

  heads forward and with each other  

  tilted back in a laugh  

  heels scraping sand on the way back  

adult old and all that 


the chin comes in  

  for another push below the knees  

as if we never got that 
thank god the sky's got enough blue 
to catch me & you 
in the swivel of a giggle 
a back and forth 
no one else knew 
chains and wood for a seat 
under the sound that comes before a laugh

    that's really good. i mean, i've been told that i'm a good writer too and that i show a talent for it, but that is by far, better.
