Ginkgo, for Lack of Digits


My time here              (in natural order)

      is longer for years       for breaths

like ours.

                              I’m the one

with all the time             branches

                              lightly hover

with your death        your heels     toes

      full of bumble     blood, youth   you have

to know      this risk of my time here

(in no natural order)     unnatural

     is without you          the brown body

the tree I will leap from       fanning leaves

separating               in a blown wind,

I fall for our time             here,     uncounted.
