under neon blue trees

 
 

we absorbed
summers day
on a quiet
evening,
 
spoke about
how we both  
couldn't fathom
possessive  
instincts  
 
as entangled
roots catch on
our windpipes,
how family ties
no longer serve
any purpose
 
laughed
at buildings  
engraved in
ironic names
holding no
meaning,  
 
watched
others walk
out of stores
paying blood
to drape sheep
over shoulders
 
and  
 
how the world  
often forgets  
we are born
individuals
first and
foremost,  
 
i couldn't
explain that
gush of wind
rushing over  
my palms
 
as hands  
& fingers
interlock  
each other,
 
slowly  
baring our
strange in  
full bloom.
