Beautiful poem
BY JOHN YAU
Come live with me
And we will sit
Upon the rocks
By shallow rivers
Come live with me
And we will plant acorns
In each other’s mouth
It would be our way
Of greeting the earth
Before it shoves us
Back into the snow
Our interior cavities
Brimming with
Disagreeable substances
Come live with me
Before winter stops
To use the only pillow
The sky ever sleeps on
Our interior cavities
Brimming with snow
Come live with me
Before spring
Swallows the air
And birds sing.
