i feel just like a child

i adore the song ‘pumpkin seeds’ by devendra banhart.

The afternoon café con leche:

Warm milk and frothy foam float,

Two spoonfuls of sugar and my gaze flies out a window.

It takes me where I want to be:


Adrift in my favorite cove,

Bright blue canvas on a 4pm sky

Water splashes in my ear, drops on my cheeks

Honey yolk sun warms my face.

My thoughts are free to hum.

And I feel infinite.

Soaring, gliding, pulsing ripples and my beating heart.
