home away from home,

in this world and that

i do not know when

i do not know when
these rose-colored
glasses fell
away from my
face – maybe it was
during some kind of
skirmish, maybe i
slipped them off
between gazing
over there
and looking right
here,
so that i could
see more clearly

distance is the great

distance is the great
revealer – you are miles and miles
and miles away, i

am weaving such a tale, heavy
with details, just to reach you

two-and-a-

two-and-a-
half feelings away
from being
unstuck has
become a lengthy
visitor. we sit
at the table
in silence, mostly
afraid to turn
on, check in,
update, call
up, initiate.
when no news
is no longer good
news, but imagining
the worst, two-
and-a-half feelings
away from being
unstuck is as sound
a visitor as any

we are one brooklyn

a data point or

a data point or
two away from becoming
a pattern, we spark,

glimmer, look for enough sky
to be free of our equations

on the lunar

(for grandpa)

on the lunar
calendar, we
are celebrating
our birthdays
today, just one
world away
from each
other,
which feels
like multitudes,
on and off
the system
for counting
so many days
apart

a week away from

a week away from
you, and a week
ahead, i am
balancing the
two sides of
home, as if i were
somewhere
in an outer-
outer borough

there is a natural

there is a natural
tightening of the heart, a
steeling of nerves at

the point of departure – it looks
like you and me leaning away
