a thousand times: after The Kite Runner

yes, for you, a thousand times,
a thousand times over.

hush. don’t roll that
question mark out of
your tongue.

you never question
the lyrics of hummingbirds’
afternoon noon song, never
doubted each stroke of
sunset, all hues’re never

wrong. hush, let lick straight
your forehead knots, come
listen, closer, for you,

a thousand times,
a thousand times over.

  1. Enjoyed the hummingbird image with their afternoon song. It’s true that nature doesn’t question and it’s been spinning on “a thousand times over, a thousand times over.” There is a lot of comfort in this thought! 💝
