there is beauty in

spring arrives on tip-

spring arrives on tip-
toes, alighting an hour or
two into April.

be ready to negotiate,
have a music to barter

it’s all well and good

it’s all well and good
to state that we will not show
up, that we will take
to the streets, show
solidarity by stepping out
of housework, child
care, maybe apply
some self-care at
the local beauty
parlor, therapeutic
spa. meanwhile, a
host of silent women
will step in
to fill the gap, make
the lunches, file the
nails, listen to and
nod and listen to the
ones who insist on
being heard

the moment that comes

the moment that comes
as a surprise is the one
that feels the most
natural –
because we will
have chanced
upon the same
wavelength, woven
in and out of the same
seconds, and uncovered
a case for ourselves

for several minutes

for several minutes
each day, you are a figment,
and i am partial

to the lengthy strips of you
stitched between winter’s branches

here it is –

here it is –
you have
done with me
what the sun
does
to the shoreline
of each
continental
coast –
so much
darkness
in between

the edge of the bed

the edge of the bed
traps dreams
the way glass
seemingly traps
water before it
overflows. you
are asleep and on
the other side,
i am on this side
still feeling for the
edges of dreaming
