On Writing

Poem 232 – Moving


“It is dawn and your poems
have moved me to poems.”

pg 261, from ‘Variations’, The Collected Poems of Patrick Lane

the worry in my guts detangles
as I ask you to trust me

to trust yourself
to embrace the painful
process of conversations
about change

we’re in this together
like night & day

like reading poems
& writing poems like

the profound occurrence
of emotions moving
