when I remember you / all possibilities nudge 
warm enough / they wink / nodding toward the water

imagine I’m a sleeping seed
you’re my dream

no matter how ridiculous the crack I wake in
I start unfolding out and sinking in

you’ve seen larvae dance without noticeable tune
and bees slam into glass then hive off headlong in the right direction

that’s me when I remember you here
that’s me when I remember not now

something deep inside me waves flags
tiptoe tries to get you to see

all because I’m sure as bright green
you’re eager too

not worried / not sad
not wanting anything but a moment

abandoning every now for next
this moment / depending on nothing

certainly / certainty
