Kit Kelen #413 - the problem of reciprocation


413
the problem of reciprocation

I see a little way into their mystery
I'd like it to be known and to them
but they're not the seeing kind

the mountain's sensate otherwise
I feel it's so
they have no feeling for me

and so the trees are for the forest
hold the stream to course
like cupped hands
can we see what they catch
when they've heard nothing coming ?

even with a mouth, with eyes
it isn't so hard
to tear out a heart
from the living flesh
and hold its last few beats
in your hand
