descend/knock

by carolinenoelle

when entering woods

(another October is over—)

a woodpecker knocks back, hello

“If only I could give you

the moments I have alone.”

 

maybe, here–

we could get married?

go home, watch movies (in the same bed.)

 

and name our daughters after trees.

 

I am happy here, you know,

with my New Collected Friends.

I’ve taken all of their photographs

(holding their dogs and their dreams)

 

but do you want to come over?
