some encounters leave

some encounters leave
bruises – accidental or
on purpose matters

less than whether the imprint
leaves an emotional scar

two bruises into

two bruises into
the morning, counting only
the corners that i

remember – some days just shrink
a little, wrinkling our spaces

when we fight

when we fight,
the first
thing we notice
is that we run
suddenly out
of
words – the letters get
ink-tied, the meaning
punctured. when
we fight, a second
shatters into
immeasurable
shards – time gets
disconnected,
but nothing
breaks. when we
fight, it is with
the looming
spaces between
us – no sharp
objects, no
corners, nothing to
bruise us later

with one small
gesture, my
purpose is
shelved, joy
bruised, like the sudden
emptiness flapping
at the end of
every storybook
