I’d like to be an off-beat
syncopated little thing;
note and stem floating on the melody, just sitting in
appoggiatura, grace-note, special thing.

I’d like to be a sailor
swinging on the ocean wind
coarse old rope between my hands and salt-spray where my toes begin
nimble little sailor, clever thing.

I’d like to be a bed-sheet
gentle thing to warm your skin
thing that you hug tighter when the morning starts to filter in
falling through your creases, lucky thing.

OOOH! :love: I'm so excited you got a DD on this, I was wondering why it wasn't getting a DLD. :giggle:
I included it in a literature feature, here: intelligentzombie.deviantart.c… :heart: :happybounce:
