after all this time,

after all this time,
and icarus, we still long
for wings – as if we

could ever learn from someone
else’s mistakes, resist bruising

the patterns you

the patterns you
observe in time
are meant
to cushion every
anomaly, the way
packaging foam
hugs the curves
of each fruit
to hold the juices
in, keep from
bruising.
so don’t
be restless, my
dear, don’t
insist that you are
bored. sink into
the patterns
of our lives,
soak it in between
the days, the years

i might as well

i might as well
admit, there is a pattern
to this bruising –
upon closer examination,
it exposes enough
carelessness
of the heart
