Gravity

Interspersed with brick walls.

I’m forgetting why the branch spreads itself out.

My dependence resembles a child wearing a paper crown

in the grocery aisle, scolding mom

for not buying another candy bar.

Forgetting why the river splits:

what holds me here is what

keeps the sun just close enough,

what keeps the sun just far enough.
