(I don’t even know your name)

roses are far more common
than daffodils, and trees like
redwood, oak stand the
test of time; but I see them
less and less within my
periphery as you usurp
my vision from green quiet
eyes, and with one look
you rid me of grays and
prejudices, judgements I
reserved for parts of this
world— you banish my anger,
my self-control and open
these gates from where this
lonely heart has stayed
behind its boundaries.

I break all rules and trespass
into private prairies where to
pluck this solitary thought—
me and you at dawn amongst
these sunflowers, together
