SpinTo Jennifer Waller's previous piece     This morning I woke to a memoryTo Jennifer Waller's next piece

I would bring you oceans
In an eye dropper-

I would make this my life.
Squeezing the bulb,
Trekking back to you,
Wherever you are,
And building oceans 

I would bring you the desert
One grain at a time-

Laying them at your feet
As an offering of devotion-
Creating a world
Where you were the only

I would gather the ashes,
Of everything dead

And breathe life,
Resurrecting the love
You never understood.

I would slit my throat
If you were thirsty-
And find nothing but joy
In quenching your thirst.
