Why do we undermine signs?
Like when people say “this means that”
And people roll their eyes like
“Well I guess. If you were looking for it.”
Looking for it.
I was having a conversation with the universe. Sometimes it just whispers.
We say we’re
We weren’t listening either
How much of it was maybe just us?
So I listen.
To the moon and
The sun and
The earth and
All the living things
“This is a sign” the universe says. So I leap.
And sometimes I fall flat on my face.
But I get up and
And sometimes I fly.
Sometimes I play leapfrog.
Sometimes I fall into the ocean
but I know how to swim.
