know how to unfurl?
like the drawn-touch
of a lover
that uncoils,
comes again and again
the wind inhales
softness surrounded
by bony
know the center
of the star and grow up

press down to unfurl
yes —

the incredible things
you can do
when troubling forces
press down
and all you can do is dance

you say you want a rich(er) life, human?
that life would be better
if you could eat inside your favorite
restaurant, drink deeply from your favorite bar, go to your favorite concert or show, blah-blah-blah

know how to unfurl?
watch me
