A heavy read

Come here and look at this dairy
There’s two people by the window
They’re fighting and one’s about to cry
Look closely now, the memories float
Like a ship in a bottle, how’d they do it?
Fit so much in a small place like that
If you turned the corner, you’d see
Faces melting away like butter


The canvas tight
about your heart
The weight of dreams
Painted on it
Let them say
One day the Gods discovered you
With a voice of wind
And aflame
A whole mountain in your eyes
