Not Now; One Day

one day: i'll slip out this doorway
suddenly, unnoticed,
barred from any one line of dapper dress
and instead will face the outdoors
in mounds of blood.

one day: i'll call to the heartache
briefly, softly,
taking all i have from abrupt echoes
to spin myself through the breezes
without my body.

one day: i'll hear the trees sway
cunningly, swiftly,
creaking as they dig their tired roots
farther and father into the ground—
like my tired body.
