getting a starter

getting a starter
started takes
time and mostly
patience
as time
can easily

unfed

suddenly, i am

suddenly, i am
noticing that you notice
everything – noticed,

have noticed, everything all
along – an eye-opener

the air around us

the air around us
tremble before we touch, it
happens every time –

molecules pushing aside
other molecules for a kiss

past, present, future

past, present, future
unwind, reminisce – barrels
of begonias

bathing in the sunlight that
lassos and secures our dreams

we all do it now

we all do it now
and then
and eventually,
gnarl between and
beyond
varying states of
recognition, twist
like willow
or bonsai, contort
like oak. i am
looking at you
and discovering
someone
else. you are not
looking at me
and seeing
with clarity

between vacuuming

between vacuuming
the house, cleaning
out and restocking
the fridge, ironing
the dinner napkins,
folding and unfolding
the sheets, trips to the
airport, thawing the
ham, one more
grocery run, and
refueling the gas
tank, mom and dad
meet in the backyard
for a breather,
holly-hunting
