Drip Drying

Almost empty, and the four wheel drive is out.
But it's Spring now.

In winter I fell on the ground and left
little pieces of me in gravel.

They are growing up now,
eager to meet tornadoes

but I have yet to introduce them to rain.
Recycling the way you say the letter

I concern myself only with the
last half of the alphabet,

which tastes like little agnostic pecan trees.
Drip drying, dancing to Harvest Moon.

Can I just give myself to you
me wrapped in paper?

Breaking your good posture around me,
collapsing in the irony of your drowning.

In giving and growing, I warm
puddles in the street, with your help.
