second born

green eyed girl
I barely know you
as if our lives
have touched only briefly

I have been
so busy, so distracted
since the door cracked
open between us, letting
in the blinding light of morning

what keeps you
and what turns you away?

green eyed girl
your hair glistens
like the feathers of a bird
and you have the swift heart
of a swallow

what makes your eyes
shine gold-black as if brushed
by the music of the stars?
