Kindled Green

from by BASK



anointed in the arms of the untried
with lifted hands it’s lapping at the tide

rain joins the gust and brine
it ran from better lands and brighter hills
to taste the alkaline
the well drank away my crimes
and in the grass we wore a path of rut
to roam away the blight

you’re pulling up the wildflowers like weeds
breathing in the black of kindled green
praying for the rust to polish clean
you’re planting husks and swallowing the seeds

to taste the alkaline
