Poem of the Day: “because you cannot”

because you cannot

because you cannot put in your pocket
the way that the cloud twists & curls
with weightless grace

because you cannot really share the tendrilous way
the murmuration made you feel inside
anticipating unmoored joy

…and the reproductive yoga of dragonflies
belongs reflected in the sky
on the surface of the pond

…and the sparrows mating in a flury of feathers
in a moment of plummeting freefall
belong to that moment

remember it all if you can
the next time you press yourself to your lover,
remember and emulate

those who can,
