Hot Sunshine Song by Holly Day


I tried to open my heart to you

felt the petals stick as they struggled

like the warped bud of a sick tulip—fungal

at the root, I tried

to love you but I didn’t know how.

You tried to help me, I think

armed with harpoons and bone snares that

meant love, but only the jagged edges

registered anything with me.

I forget the good things I know were there.

We could have been good together

if the right pieces had met at the right time,

instead of crashing like icebergs, breaking into cold snow

we might have been perfect if we’d tried

a few years later.
