recognizing only a splinter

recognizing only a splinter
of a fragment of how
the observable
universe works, i am stuck
wondering if somewhere,
in the constellation
hydra
, someone has
looked out her window
for the last time, a witness
to the collision, ouroboros

in the middle of

in the middle of
day, i glance down at my new
old watch, every tick

a reminder of dad’s old
new love, steady, fully charged

between shadow and

between shadow and
light, you teach me how to move
with the appearance

of abandon, heart locked for
careful considerations

at long last, we have

if i had my way with

if i had my way with
delta waves, and there
were a catalogue to
dreaming, i would
run a slippery finger
down the thumb index
to find the letters to
your initials – perhaps
they would be rubbed
off with devotion –
skim down the
pages, pick one before
i get too
involved or over-
whelmed with the
selection, and lie
down to dream.

or perhaps the letters
would be crisp,
untouched, the pages
never exposed to
light, a volume
of deferred
gratification
because resisting
is always more
pleasurable.

on day fifty-three, only
my waking thoughts
go there, caress
the spine of unknown
volumes, controlling
the impulse to ask
for at least one dream

and so it seems

and so it seems
a kiss can undo
the completeness
of the world, a tongue
can lap at the latitudes
and longitudes that
secure our bearings.
i am trying not to be
irretrievable,
swallowed
by an infinity
mirrored moment

you said a wish can

you said a wish can
be a hope for something slightly
out of reach, a thing

to strive toward, i am breaking
character to claim that wish
