i wish i would

(by edie young)    
 
i wish i could send you
all the light, that
down through the trees  
empty Cafe
you stories of  
that which is filtering
above this  
courtyard surrounding
me on this morning, of the  
connectiveness holding  
within the tissue,
of the crow  
now, of the soft susurrus  
together
of speech issuing  
close together above me just  
of the  
traffic whispering
past, sound waves  
around the building  
so powerfully  
travelling  
to reach my
ears, for that is where the empty
courtyard within which I sit is in
the rear of the joint I would send
you notice of the  
words I speak  
unintelligibly
out in  
reassurance to the barking dog
two house yards away, making  
into the World its own noises.
Speaking. More Sunlight.  
 
i would that there were six of me, each with two sets of hands, that one of them might write you and nothing more. Five more might write (i guess) to other correspondents, and plus there'd be an original ghost, left over just for me.
 
i suppose I'd have to find a couple two three additional correspondents but that wouldn't be so bad.
 
today I think I'll go to the bookstore..
