You, kissing in the daylight
Toothless puzzle pieces
Telling every dog of the world to heal

Come and see, songs and voices in the bowl which I found once my eyes were closed, come and see the rest of everything along with me.
Hand me over to the times when you smile, shopping healthy,
The small of my back hurts today.

I forget to care, I take a walk with Julia,
I want to tell her yes,
I have in my wilderness, curtains closed in the afternoon, found a piece of quiet, eighteenth century,
The cello string is played, I can be alive.
