five months and two

five months and two
hundred dumplings into
our version of
the pandemic, we
cope by folding,
folding the monotony
of survival and
trauma into smaller,
still smaller vessels,
containable
capsules, sealable
sleeves – almost
more manageable
when bite-sized

maybe for a couple

maybe for a couple
of months, it’ll hurt.
maybe for a couple
more, i’ll still
notice. after
that, the body
promises relief
and release – life
contemplates
death in bite-sized
servings, small
addicting
doses
to propel life
towards death

some things are more

some things are more
digestible when
skewered
– take
reality, for example –
when chopped into
pieces, marinated,
threaded and
gently grilled,
spiced, you
chew and
swallow each
piece with little
to no resistance,
each essential
morsel makes
sense – yes, to
healthcare, yes,
to taxes, yes, to
protecting human
rights, yes, to energy
efficiency, yes to
peace, yes,
yes, yes

to be effective,

to be effective,
it has to be
bite-sized,
a miniature
nudge
of
dopamine,
honeycomb-
sticky, but
detachable.
to be addicted,
there should
be a semblance
of caving
in. or is it
the other
way around?

don’t underestimate

don’t underestimate
the things you sell
yourself in bite-
sizes
– at the tip
of a wish are other
wishes clamoring
to get out

trust me, bite-

on the days when you

on the days when you
take time off, you say that
work is a rumor,
you cut up
the day into bite-sized,
manageable chunks,
then wait leisurely
for a sign to begin
.
