banks of a crystal flowing creek

I asked my best friend
to braid my broken veins
on the banks of crystal flowing creek
he said
“I am almost out of time”

I watched
as he cried
I took his hand
to my lips

we walked
in each others arms
toward the banks of the crystal flowing creek

we talked
I made him belly laugh one last time
he pulled his love knife out of my heart

like a fault beneath the earth
we stirred and splintered
an owl sang our
heart to heart song

“you shall never walk alone
inside my heart I will walk on
with you tucked up inside”

my friend and I

a solitary man
when he found me
a solitary man
when we parted

now walking apart
right or wrong

confused kin folk
grimaced
like birds caught in a wire

hoping they’d heard wrong
it can’t be true

best friends
soul mates
can’t go wrong

together
our hands still clinging tightly
said
it can
it has

like a river
long
we fought hard
over
time
into a foreign tributary

paddling separate canoes
in different directions
searching day and night
for the banks of a crystal flowing creek

banks of a crystal flowing creek
