With Saying

Liz Danzico gives us a beautiful, simple reminder that some things go with saying.

“It goes without saying,”
they say.
Without expressing
simple joy
anxiety
gratitude
flusteredness
love
anger!
or thanks.
It just goes without saying,
most of the time
and we go
looking
watching
waiting
not noticing the oak or the ash.
The marks in the leaves are the same.
Right?
Anyway,
no one is saying anyway.
But what if it went with saying.
They’d say,
“It goes with saying.”
And we might say,
thanks.
