Kerri Shying R # 136 go on, go on

go on go on

belief in holding
 some acceptance in the hand
is best done

before the words are
paginated    set
and fingers crush the
stories into  shapes

guts up    hard
against their spines

before the other phantoms
loom     pressing into
spaces     sought for
making  lists

fears oppress   distress
 the birds     fly south with


belief    it looks you
in the eye

a sky above
blue     sea     here soil
the hand you hold
the sleep  

 carried-on belief   
 no thought but that
 it’s you
