between vacuuming

between vacuuming
the house, cleaning
out and restocking
the fridge, ironing
the dinner napkins,
folding and unfolding
the sheets, trips to the
airport, thawing the
ham, one more
grocery run, and
refueling the gas
tank, mom and dad
meet in the backyard
for a breather,
holly-hunting

i am holding it

i am holding it
in without resorting to
the precision of
bottles, reflecting
that elegant
fragility without
the possibility
of breaking

it takes a bit of

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
