I’ve been looking for you so long
I need you so so
soso so much &
it snowed my woes
check my shoes my purple hands
I’ve been looking for you
Can I plant my heart somewhere
in your mud? May I lay down a while
under the magnolia in your middle?
Can I dig you up?
I’ve carried these grandmothers
and uncles for 28 years my skin
wrapped stones in my turning over head
