Arrival

I don't own this
you can have it
pass it on

it was here
when I arrived
waiting to be
unwrapped,
inspected,
appreciated

I can't keep you
from yourself
from your calling

to be
otherwise
would be foolish
would prove fatal
to the exchange
of ideas
in motion
love reaction

I don't own this
it's all yours
thanks for asking

when I arrived
I was cradled
in feathers
and silk
mother's milk
the treacle
dripping from
heaven above

just as I thought
I can't keep you
to myself

you belong
to the wider world
and your story
is as old
as a thousand hills
in my memory
where I can go
any time
just to
poke around

I don't own this
you can have it
life goes on.
