Linden Tree


If I could keep this: this linden tree feeling
when all-time melts into one stiff driveway

and I can only fold a love song into telephone
lines. There’s a satellite that will take me
           any-
where to you. The way a map opens, lifelike,
and grows to make a system out of any speck

of land makes each day spent without you
seem like any minute someone will inform

me that I’ve been walking around with so 
many broken bones.
