perhaps one out of
every thirty-six
futures are
lit – the
statistics are
staggering when
you consider
awakening in
the dark, alone

coldness clings

with or without

with or without
one another,
loneliness
finds a
way. across
an unconditional
present – drip,
drip, drip…

i didn’t know
when you came,
you were asking me to
color you in again, even
the boundaries remained
so specifically
unclear. you

when we are alone,

when we are alone,
we can measure time
by the seconds
or by the hours –

you’re alone –
that elusive
malted milkshake
