ODE TO THE GREEN LIGHT THAT COMES THROUGH MY WINDOW EVERY AFTERNOON


The green light comes through the window.
I unpeel the banana. Life is a seesaw. I want to be touched.
To be picked up and placed gently down into August.
Instead, the slow rocking of another hour.
Instead, I peel off the doll and take care of it.
Voices turning in my hands. Lean in.
Prune the greening of days accounting.

I squat to hug the potted plants. 

I feel another version of myself
pushing me on this swing.

The night disappears from my palm. Lean out. 

I let loneliness sit in my lap. I wake
to the tick-tocked refrain of I am here, I am here.
