Weaker than Water

"In the world, there is nothing more submissive and weak than water. Yet for attacking that which is hard and strong, nothing can surpass it." –Lao Tzu

Dear one, were
you older,
myself
a little younger,
fewer crows’
feet
tracking my eyes,
cellulite my
thighs,
I might seek
the audacity
locked
in my box
of books
molding
in the attic.
I might
untape
edges, run fingers
against cardboard
lips,
ease open panels,
knees hurting
as
I bring myself
down, down,
closer,
closer yet still,
breathing in
dust
of everything sitting
between you,
me
and the robin
singing in
spring.
