november wind,

the feeling of knowing something before you said it, all over everything.

as in, shadow take me into the side of the mountain, as in,

open up the earth and get inside.

leaving doesn’t mean much.

arriving means everything,

how you came to be where you were,

even if later it will hurt to think of it.

– from The Truth is Concrete by Katie Peterson
