Set adrift
In an ocean
Hair and thoughts of flotsam and jetsam,

Wrapped in olive swaths of silk
Espresso eyes full of woe
A mouth that cannot keep pace
With a mind that has no limits

Amazing child
My heart becomes a shovelful of burning coals
On seeing you

Alone you’ll always feel
Your mind so incompatible
A puzzle piece in the wrong puzzle
Yet you see all the connections

How you lace together
Pieces of time and space
The leaves of the trees of ancient Greece
Woven together with modern words
You joke of appliances, origins and names
Imagine scenes
Rush though life
Describe everything
Notice everything
Teach those around you
Live with compassion
Suffer in silence

When you are a man
I hope you find her
