conversation with the universe in spring
grow your hair to the moon, they say.
but start with your ass. they remind me that my body
is still a useful tool even when it feels pain,
even when it can’t move like it once could.
i tell the universe how grateful i am to still be hungry.
they say, keep eating & then, be eaten.
i reheat the macaroni, i stand under the sky, i let the fresh
heat move me around in its mouth.
do you feel that? the universe asks.
& yeah, i sure do.
