things I said
and should have said

float, upheld by a draft,
white tufts of cotton seed,

dandelion, milkweed,
let go without force,

let go in the margins
of a pad, a grocery list—

how the wind picked up,
took these dark seeds higher,

further than I thought, 
but away from you,

baby.  Away from you.
