every morning i file

every morning i file
some minutes down
for you so that
you will never have to
wonder. for every
second that loses
its edge, there are a
handful that fall
slowly between
us, like knives.

    You write so intelligently graceful. This is great.

    I love the image of sitting on the edge of the bed with a nail file, morning light in the window.
