Forget the stampedes
The sky is breathing music
Roll down your windows

Freedom’s Laughter

That sweet tar-footed day
We got caught up in leaves
And watched the sky
Split its rainfall,

We laughed and knew,

We held each other tightly,
Not too brittle still.

We caught each other crying
As if our joy was the prelude,

And suddenly we realised
We were nothing,
Womb to worms,
Except free.

I remember hearts almost bursting,
The smell of wet wool
And tree sap,

A wind singing new hymns.

There’s a beauty in knowing
You’ll be fallible till you die.

Dear Leader

If your freedom
Is walking round
Broken glass parks
As the dark spits it’s venom
All over your brow,

How is it
Your visits
Are met with dog barks?

And why is it
Your wow is a factor
