05

took 

a bottle of 

water

Found open and undrank

In a familiar workspace

Call it my classroom

Everyone does

Carried it outside, where a 

Dogwood blooms in a cement sea

The leaves were already radiant 

With rain

emptied the 

water

Over the tremulous branches

A miracle! 

Touched a leaf

love you!

Movement like breath, sun like blood

Bend, bow, turn

The bottle 

threw in the trash

With so much else

One part of me here,

One there
