my attention

it’s how the breeze blows
through the leaves that
makes the sunlight shift
back and forth
in and out
that’s how my attention
is caught
not just the cool wind
on my arm
or the warm sun
on my face
it’s love in the afternoon
when you’ve just gotten
home from a long trip
that’s how my attention
flourishes
not just the grinding
and the sweetness
it’s the relief of being
with someone you love
and sitting close so
you’re breathing the
same air
that’s how you know
that you have my
attention
