Out of the mind, heart is.
Before sliding a forkful of tenderness into our mouth,
Mind for supper.

She won’t stop nursing you.
She will manage the impossible…

Long tube-like mouth of care,
Visiting every narrowed life corner.
heart is all around a garden.
What are we feeding ourselves in order to feed our survival?
Honey, oats, dreams.
