Do Not Stop Moving

Whoever lets go in his fall dives into the source and is healed - Rainer Maria Rilke*

let go– Love
you had
none but I kept
falling, and you
do not hold
on to all
we put into the
box– I

wrapped tightly
wound in green
ribbon put in
my ribs
A rusted red apple
a pear
that I picked
for you but you
would not bite
into my love.

I have nothing, but you–

* Stephen Mitchell translation
