Dana Falconberry – I thought about you


So happy I got to meet Dana Falconberry

Lake Charlevoix

Did you think of me that day
when you drove down the driveway?
i was a handful then, i know
with my shoes untied
i wouldn’t watch the sunset
without a coat and a helmet
i was a quivering maple leaf
about to drop
but on the shore of the lake last fall
i don’t know if you heard us all
but i found a crow in the sand and i asked
am i missing something?
when you gave me that rock split in half
and i turned away from you and laughed
i meant i was sorry
just so you know
i read the letter you wrote to me
when you moved back to kentucky
said “the hills are so green, my god
you should see them.”
and now though it’s early spring
it’s still cold in the morning
and i keep my curtains
mostly closed.
