in between getting

in between getting
started and getting it done
are unnamed moments

for breathing creativity
into each block, every curve

perhaps you protect

perhaps you protect
yourself from me a little,
when a handful of
words exchanged
can acquire life,
get out of bed
with a sigh, become
intimate with every corner
of the apartment, eat
the same meals you
eat, watch the same
Centurion Classics,
crawl into the hammocks
you hang between more
words planted by once
familiar authors, lay down
beside you at night,
try to control their
breathing in the dark,
on the chance that you
won’t swat them away

after some time, all

after some time, all
kisses sort themselves into
two camps – the
no-nonsense, let’s get
it on prelude, or
the perfunctory
have a good day,
glad we are here together,
goodnight dispatch.
perhaps with enough
practice, we can find a way
back to the bewitchment
before the kiss, where
taste and pressure are
two unknown variables
that require solving,
bathed in the warmth
of breaths co-mingling
as if for the first time,
lips stumbling upon
a wondrous new pace

we are all a soft

when you are asleep,

when you are asleep,
the seconds rise and fall beneath
an arm around your

waist. you are the waves, pulling
me towards morning’s shores

in the middle of

in the middle of
the night, i am
awake suddenly
and find myself
eavesdropping
on your
breaths, counting
them,
counting
the seconds between
them, syncing
mine
to
yours, holding on
firmly
as if your steadiness
were the last
ticket past midnight
that could carry me
back
to the comfort of home
