it has come to my
attention that
you sing when
moving from room to
room in the middle of
a quiet afternoon because
i scare easily. love is
adding to our repertoire
so that we can
become more
secondhand
fearless together

in the absence of

in the absence of
you, there is even more
presence – more
questions, infinite
unknowns, undivided
attention to the
possibilities of
how you
like it. nine-tenths
of a second is about
preparing for
the next second. i
apply oil to all of the
hinges, ready to step
into and out of these
intervals of waiting

you are awake in
the middle of the
night, hanging onto
the edge of my
dreams, searching.
you said i keep
touching your cheek,
feeling for a face
that may or may not
have been your
face. i asked if
i said anything.
you said i was
speaking in a
foreign language
again. il n’y a pas plus
sourd que celui qui
ne veut pas entendre

perhaps time stretches
during separation, seconds
become minutes,
minutes, hours,
and so on and so forth,
so that upon
return, it is
best to use caution
when opening
overhead bins, as
items may have
shifted in flight

from sunrise to

from sunrise to
sunset, we struggle
to say the things
we want to say,
chased down with
the words we
want to hear –
attention slacks
from so much
pressure

in the city or
on the outskirts,
morning arrives
blaring
take note,
some horns
require more
attention
than others

happenstance is the

happenstance is the
glue that holds
beauty together –
our attention tugs
at new means to contain
one another, slipping in
and out – a golden ratio
