Interstate Ave Affirmation Octet

                for Sandy
all day you speak inside me: this gentle rain
whispering kisses to the leaves & birch trees

nodding yes—catkins scattered on the sidewalk,
they’ve given it all up to the elements—

these dogwoods nodding yes & yes again, pink
hands open to what the sky has to offer—

train pulling out of Prescott Station chiming
nothing so clear as your clear voice speaking yes
