April 7

when I was seventeen my friend died with my poem in his wallet


and then the sun set for me and God was there

he'd painted the sky so pretty for me


and then Cat Stevens wrote me a whole album

he told me about what to do if I lose my eyes


and now I like how my basil reaches up towards me when watered

like a human when kissed for a long time


give everything away! Your whole heart!
