where we go from here

i will go extinct
with you

to a place
no one
sees

afar away so
far away

with you
i know
a place
to go

from land and sea
and chestnut
tree

to timeless honey
amber seeds
grown up in milky
weeds

thrash about
the ankles of
the dagger
trees

in porous ozone
magnifique
of everglades on bended
knees

the wind will turn to
water then

our words need no
translation
there

you braid my hair
i nick your name

in ghostly hollows
full

we harbor not ill
will

we selfless
standing small and
still

talking through our golden
eyes

where smiles wide
formulate
new skies

please!

now don't be
scared

come with me
extinct
you see

we've only just
begun
