there are levels

there are levels
to these patterns
the human brain
sears onto a go-to
memory card
the image of
young urban
thing standing
in front of
establishment
with
the word trouble
i am asking you to
flip through several
cards down for
the one that is
grayer, with patterns
more painful
to access,
those invisible
interlocking systems

in the middle of

in the middle of
the night, the mind runs
errands the body
pretends to know
nothing about,
reshuffles everything
we’ve said or felt or
said we’ve felt
so that there are
new hands to play
by morning, with
over two-point-five
million possibilities
hidden beneath
our poker faces

sleep until the sun comes up –
my brain is playing

blackjack with my body, and
neither is doubling down

part of keeping it
in is not
letting it show –
it’s only a game
as long as there
are still cards
off the table,
contours to
be revealed
