Alan Botsford – Ⅳ

Eden that he never saw 



It was a gift.

(You know what he did? He looked out the window.)

It was pain at all that was received within.

(You know how he felt? The hidden stream beside him wanted

him so badly all

he wanted to do was float away, but he didn’t. He stayed.)

It was knowledge of its roundness.

(You know how he knew? His bones felt at ease.)

It was joy,

You know,

To see

A mystery.
