Day 48
6:47 am – 7:35 am

Whiteness / You Are White

It is the difference

Between
You can’t believe this happened
and
I’ve seen, heard, felt, lived, that before

The way
Your jaw drops to the floor
and
My eyes roll toward the sky

Between
Shock
and
No surprise

tkk

(….) / (well)

You are

Somewhere, I hear,

Where it is

.

Well

.

You
Don’t
Let me

See

I deserve
That

Completely

tkk

Oliver

Sometimes
i imagine
your
paw
no claw
on my face

Automatically
my
toes turn to
wiggle

My face
forms
happy, dopey-like

And
i am tuned
to what
the purest
of all, utter,
giddy-bliss
is
