My friend the dove who sits outside my hotel room window. (Zoriah)

To move
Needing to be
Nowhere else.

Wanting nothing
From any store.

To lift something
You already had
And set it down in
A new place.

Seeing freshly.

A view from the roof of the Four Seasons Hotel (Istanbul) [sky cropped at top to fit blog]

What does that do to
The old blood moving through
Its channels?
