slow dreams

i felt cool stones upon my feet.
something jagged slipped into my heel.
i didn't think to call out, but you came.
there was no blood.

a child stuck her hand into cold dirt.
she crushed a pill bug with her fingers
just to see what happened.
she ate a worm.

a person called the office.
"when do you plan on coming home?"
"I have plans tonight."
the air got heavy.
neither spoke.

someone i'm dating rescued three puppies
from the middle of the street.
he smiled a broad smile,
bathed in sunlight.
maybe i like him after all.

i was out to surf.
the waves were cold and choppy
but i knew you were watching from the beach
(even though i couldn't see you)
so i kept trying to catch a wave.
