counting leaves

two leaves… only two leaves…

two leaves! More than two leaves…

three leaves… not that many leaves…

less than four leaves

I want more leaves

arrangement… increasing height

from very left to very right

decreasing though, were I to reverse

the innocent path of my sight

wicked, the capacity to see

but does it already count 1 2 3?

the sound of a word,

in a sound mind

and how when I speak out

into the world, the word

and it’s sound, and the sound

from the sound mind

is left behind

sound of counting leaves

the fallen leaves that I see

and simply again

I count those leaves

that one, these two, those three…
