el sunza

as i venture farther away from you
and back into the depths of the shallows
of my life before you
i feel the force of your love beckoning me
my heart
to stay.

i recall so vividly
what i could not see until i was far away from you
in another place, the spin cycle of a washing machine life i know now
that part of my soul that america has muted 
was heard by you, turned up! and validated into being
for the beings there live the way
i was created to
crave to
feel most myself in.
this life of people and simplicity and trash in the streets and lawns and love.

you are grasped in my open palm
beating
el sunza.
