unhinged

comfort alone
pointedly deserved
leads an inward retreat
cracking open the
youthful me

one where i
picture you
as a child
already
six feet tall

my hands
reaching up
to coax you
down from
dark clouds
negotiating
your dreams

even as a
girl your
light
unhinged
me

rearranged
time and
consumed
the revolutions

overlapping
the envelope
of a sky you
had yet to
open
