there are decisions

there are decisions
that beget other decisions –
we break for lunch, not

knowing how one thing here could
possibly alter the other

there is a stinging

there is a stinging
ceaselessness to unloving
we try out the same

words elsewhere, hold tight to other
words for just a while longer

i would like to break

i would like to break
down into smaller, even
smaller parts, parts no

longer distinguishable,
stop recognizing me, please

so much of day is

so much of day is
a longing
for light, perhaps
there is a
flickering as we
maintain the
right amount of
exposure, project
the appropriate
reflection towards
each other, counting
on the same back.
we look away
every now and then
so as not to break
the illusion

do not be alarmed – i

do not be alarmed – i
found a bruise on my
upper right
thigh the size of
carelessness, the
shade of meditative
healing, the length
of missing you.
between the corner
of the table and
rounding week
two, it’s only a
matter of time

when the heart breaks,

when the heart breaks,
the body, unbeknownst
to the host,
disconnects, one, two,
maybe several
organs at a time. it
is how on day seven,
the outer shell awakes
first and recognizes
pain along the circuitry,
the stomach reacts,
two-thirds liver-less,
the spinal cord lets
go a bouquet of
nerves, and the
tongue is speechless,
numb to the touch

between the lines we

between the lines we
draw and the lines that already
exist, we are so

very good about staying
just fine, prone to constant breaking
