Leather Belt

from by Bombadil



Like a leather belt I am unlatched on the floor
The untethered ball detached from the core

Please don’t pick me up perhaps it’s my preferred form
Please don’t put me back I’m a dropped acorn

If you mean well, leave me here
Don’t leave me here
It’s what I fear

As a desert oak I wear a trench coat of thorns
If you lean on me your skin might get torn

Just a heavy wind I am a hurricane being
A steady wave cursing all I’m seeing


from All That the Rain Promises, released November 8, 2011
