the oldest conversation ~mark nepo

I wonder, will anyone recognize us
without our anger or our fear?

And if we stand here,
softly in the open,
will we be watered
or just mowed down?

Wait. Now that you’re here,
tell me about the moon and how
deer dream of running water
and how dogs are simply dogs.

Teach me—before we’re tossed back
in—the Sanskrit of your eyes.

~Mark Nepo
