we could be looking
for a long time
in the dirt
in the other dirt

we felt cold hands
we felt cold rocks
but we don't feel as cold
as far away from something good

covering over tall and sharp
as if
we might climb
to destroy 
but in protecting ourselves
extensions of hands
extension of our own 

under fingernail
under cement patch
we can't lift
we didn't really want to
the crackling of
hurt my teeth
with shovel
she stopped to drag

i will bring you things
if you need to be there
until you need to do something else

sunrise was a long time ago
