you are

you are
gone, and we
are oceans
away, separated
by a global
pandemic, mandated
group quarantine, time,
electromagnetic
frequencies, and
chemical structure
the x, y, and z of
everyday coordinates
dissolve into more,
even more
dimensions as
memories discharge

curry is the first

curry is the first
recipe you need to take
away with you to

college – forget ramen, mac
and cheese, bring the potatoes

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
