i animal-miss you from everywhere i live/ PETER SCHWARTZ

last night your arms turned to snowflakes and the whole zoo
whispered nothing has ever fallen so prettily

there were no seagulls, nothing to perform for or quiet
just a blackened kite reaching for a sound we’ll never remember

the little things, you whispered, so i picked you up
and put you under my eyelids
