I sent you words

that left my door

open to you


They were not easy

but they were




and sincere


And they carried

all of my vulnerability


their ink


They laid

dried upon

one sheet of paper


That I folded into

a crisp, white



Which is no longer in my sight


But will soon be

in your possession


For the same mysterious one

Unknowing Trade

Now I never will

trade away peaches without knowing

they are gold


Until now I never knew


Their worth

Their sweetness

Their shine


Or the sincere simplicity

I once held at their peak

Of ripeness


Which I cannot buy again

But can wait for


the honesty

to say hello to them



Next season

Ties to You

Ties to you

are pathways

stretching from the past

forever looking forward towards what comes next


it is as if our lives are so

closely, yet loosely intertwined

that we feel we may dangle common conversation

above the world

in easy contentment


and still believe that it is something new and grand


it is in this easiness

so entirely second nature

that convinces me to believe

that ties to you are really freedoms


reminding me of strength and

in other moments introducing me to

a unique meaning of happiness

that is bestowed upon me


for knowing you

-For my best friend Jamie Samuel Wylie
