“I am” by Joe Joyce

With the mention of sunny days and mysterious love interests, Joe Joyce crafts a poem that’s as sweet as it is haunting.

I am

I am walking the appalachian trail
in pennsylvania
and i imagine there is a woman
standing by a church
and it is very green
and she is eating a peach

she hasn’t got much
in the way of face
but her eyes tell me everything
i need to know
and for an impossible sunlit moment
i am in love

she disappears among the trees
and i am left alone
without answers
in the fresh air
and the warm,
warm sun
