i looked everywhere for you
down the canal paths
over the fields
i searched between trees
and behind cows
i asked the badgers in their dens
but they couldn’t tell me
why you’d stopped visiting
these wildflower meadows
holding council with clouds
that came to you as i had
with a troubled heart
stained dark with blood
carried away by the wind
i asked her why
you never came back
but she got mad and wouldn’t say
