in the evening, you

in the evening, you
choose battletech over dinner,
battletech over

bedtime, battletech, battletech,
battletech – these harebrained schemes

inside each waiting

inside each waiting
are small sachets of seasoned
waiting, provided

principally as a source
of comfort, preservation

we serial binge

we serial binge
on one another, not yet
learning how to be
accountable
to our needs.
addiction looks
most like an accidental
next – whether your
finger was or was
not on the button
becomes more and more
inconsequential, two
to six conversations in

i am waiting on

i am waiting on
the corner to becoming
immeasurable –

perhaps staying is as much
an addiction as leaving

the thing about

the thing about
addiction is
there will never be
a wake-up
call – there will
only be one
awakening after
another
and numbness
in-between

your letters on the

your letters on the

form words that
indicate nothing
and everything,
a drugged yearning –
when one word
slips, the rest

in the record

in the record
of how
perilla found its way
into our kitchen, inspiring
reverence, then

it will be written
that the love of music
was inescapable,
and the tenderness
of wrists,
so naturally
interwoven

we are all plugged

we are all plugged
in somewhere. these
complex preoccupations
are imprinted,
rebuilt, turned
on and off, discretely
signaling, amplified
not just out of thin air.
don’t
be surprised
when some time
in the middle of
one stellar
day, when everything
else seems so
fixed, your body
becomes defenseless
at the sound of a name

we are due for a

we are due for a
renewal, a clean
slate
, something
that looks less
like a disruptive
addiction or love
petered out and
more like a
newly oiled
machine, altogether
humming

to be effective,

to be effective,
it has to be
bite-sized,
a miniature
nudge
of
dopamine,
honeycomb-
sticky, but
detachable.
to be addicted,
there should
be a semblance
of caving
in. or is it
the other
way around?
