2020-07-30 – Turn of an Eye


i caught a firefly and
felt guilty

i let purest of the birds coast
past and never even
aimed an eye

towards same sky that watches me-
painted as guilty as the
backdrop’s gravel
is gritty,

i’d turn my eye
to catch dove’s tear
but worry the
sight may

wading past rocks, too dark to tell what’s top or bottom-

i reach in even deeper to find what’s been extracted and all that ime’s forgotten.
