Dalton Day

Take the Body Apart

Not as command
or plea

Lot of fog in the trees today
until I eat it up
How much wolf am I not

I stay awake
memorizing paw prints

& then I wake up
Happy to be here

I like your name
when I say it
I’ve never said a bird before

You said wind
& I didn’t run anywhere

Body & wind

& I didn’t run nowhere

I’m too possible to flood
You made that
You made loud of me

As question

How hard can it be
to eat water

Say that again I say I say

& mean it
