		untitled (***in this shadow there is so much sun)
		-------------------------------------------------------

		in this shadow there is so much sun
		that I can submerge
		my eyes' entirety in this golden bounty

		in this rain
		there is so much fair weather
		that I can dry out
		my wet hair stuck to my cheeks

		in this day there is so much future
		that my hands disappear up to the elbows
		and so with my hands full of the day
		I say -- I love

		z/e re/ce tona/ po l/okcie
