String

I like your voice
it is deep and sure
and it anchors my skybound mind
all
the
way
down
to my
wrist
with a loop and a knot


(in youth
i feared balloons.
they always left. Perhaps..
perhaps we should talk about that)

in the most concise manner, your writing really makes people feel something. i think that makes it really meaningful.
