It is safe to say

I have let feelings pile up

Like dishes on countertops

There’s a sound and a weight when I stack them

Higher and higher and

Perhaps a smell too, but one that is bearable

For a time, anyways

 

Having now had you as you are

It is safe to say

I have let feelings pile up

I have let the earth rotate in its careful way

I have let long afternoons grow longer, but

 

Now it is

Safe to say

In a murmur that is less of a murmur

And more of a shout

That I have

I have

I— !
