there are inconstant
layers
to leaving –
there is
the moment of
departure, then
the sudden
bittersweet
minute a week
later, the same
stuck second
after one
year – none
of it, a reflection,
all of it, a generous
helping, an
inexact savoring

new year’s resolution

new year’s resolution:
chocolate cake
once-a-week –
January bakes
generously, and
we know ourselves
better than most –
it is easier to
make resolutions
that are bittersweet
