We’d Like

We’d Like 

We’d like to just sleep. 
We’d like to just eat. 
We’d like the stars to just
shine down on us—
we’d like it all
to be simple.

We do sleep, eat.
The stars do shine down on us,
but it rarely feels simple. 

We can try to look away
but that won’t cut that connection
that binds each to all,
all of us under those stars,
wanting to eat,
sleep,
shine.

Another little poem for April. Have a good day! Thanks as always for your time and kindness.
