Words for Howard


worn pinned to my sweater like feathers
guardians for the being I am
words to clarify the chaos we see,
the anguish the earth heaves into the night

look for clarity along the sky’s haze
care for the thread, ethereal as it may be
the one who places it there for you knows
he knows you won’t resist to tug 

long and silky, it will never knot and bind
soft and with whispers that travel in the winds
one cannot just read words with eyes 
you must study them with your heart 

there, in your heart, lies the end of the threads,
the beginnings of love, 
for the want of all sensibilities 
along the threads, laid for you 

with words. 
simple words.
