Vorfreude | German

: noun (feminine) / : The joyful feeling of anticipation


i caught my breath
& called that life

spit out words into small cans
prepare knives for the cutting
of orange peels and doorways

i arrive at a space
that no longer needs
autumn or spring, this forest
of telling each other the truth

– Jamila Woods
