She asked if I would please come down from the parade,
home from the water where hope flows slower than time,
back to where it all began to all begin

to be all in

one final moment 
lapsed

each passing day a cedilla 
an underscore

Dearest Love, 
Apart from all living things, everyone is fine,
at least that’s what they tell me...

I get lost in my
search 
so I look for a way 
to return 
to the searcher

all is
above me 
now sky is below, so 
to fall is to fly

I call down to her that
I'll be home dear soon
