For John: The 6 of Cups

I have no new thoughts
for you
only old
like rainworn stepstones
through a mossy place
sharp edges rounded
uneven traces.

What is left looks like the softest pillow.
It was always there
comfortable now
with its cleverness and fear

I have no new thoughts
for you
only old
like loveworn stepstones
whose roots stretch
a hundred miles or more to the center.


With love and best wishes.
