EVENING POEM #1

For the ones who bring it

I started to name you, tossing out monikers here on the evening air
so you would hear
You would know
how much you matter
You would think: wow! little 'ol me?
Your names, a litany of light that goes
Around and around this great big globe
A tangled connection of something bigger than the earth
It reaches from me to you
All the way round and back again
I hold on with both hands and call your names: yes, you.
