in the beginning,

in the beginning,
the middle, and the end, we
will bump into the

contours of life, be tempted to
break free, tumble into light

someone decided

someone decided
that fig trees should
provide two
crops each year,
marking
the beginning
and the beginning
of the end of
summer, lest anyone
returns home too
early or too late, no
one has to miss out

it always starts off

in the beginning was

in the beginning was
the word, and the word
was stella, rapping so
gently at my
window with her icy
knuckles this morning –
despite forecasts
and city shutdowns
and a state of emergency
declaration and thousands
of plows deployed
across the boroughs,
and lining up outside
grocery stores under
a cool blue sky –
despite everything, still
leaning on her southern
charm, like a new art form

the beginning most

the beginning most
closely resembles the end –
we look for something
to hang onto – a harness,
a hook, a habit, a hand

there is a beginning,

there is a beginning,
a middle, and an
end to novelty –
perhaps it
takes looking
just beyond
to recognize
the pieces that
stay, the moments
that reverberate

at the beginning

at the beginning
of things, we measure
color, intensity,
a fundamental
frequency.
at the end
of things, we measure
the weight,
the time,
the ratio between
reality and
perception

at three months, epic

our bodies are made

our bodies are made
to hold down
secrets.
for some, it takes time
to build up
tolerance.
for others, it comes
naturally, with no
perceived limitations,
no instinctual need
to purge.
but bodies are
mysterious, and some
secrets, overwhelming.
it’s a draw on which
will break down first,
risk harm, balance.
beware of
slurred speech
