Scattered Papers


distracted by thoughts of you
i turn the package wrong side up
scatter papers on the floor

staring down
as if to divine
the future
i stand in silence
hoping that you do not cast away the preciousness that is you like muddy pearls before swine

these worries leave me scattered too
at a loss to know what to say or do
what will get through to you

gathering up the pages
i gently place them back into their place
wondering how it will all hold together in your own little safe space
