trespassers

by: Shelbi Henny

prudent to plums
that lay beneath 
sand filled trees
we sync 
to vandalizing vibes and energy 
that turns us around
and leads us into each other
sending familiar shame 
to take selective analgesics 
sedating the capability to face
the exquisite view
caring is an unfamiliar notion
I once knew
a cult separating us and you
loitering explanations that protect closure
laying under plain sight 
leaving exposure
to an open heart 
with a damaged path 
you run right through
