songbird marrow

I need the sun
the hike
I need to stretch out every insecurity
on dirt paths
place my soles
in the whispered silence
ghosts of all the footsteps
before me
make me feel
clear out every brain loop
filled with
belly button fluff
unkind feelings
I’m less human
the more I sit at a desk
so give me sunshine
let me breathe
like the wild animal
carved into my
songbird marrow
