1 Poem by Kenneth Kesner

something about kate

you’d probably pause and feel lost
you couldn’t tell where she comes from
she lives in tomorrow
no one to forget no one to remember
with all the stillness of noon
maybe light knows where winds follow
how they leave if you wait
and just as silent
as prayers by a window you’re standing
the green that catches you in grey forest
a day not too warm not to flower
her eyes answer something unsaid
a kind of everything comes and goes
