here is the puddle

here is the puddle
i keep in my pocket
and pull out
periodically
to trap
city reflections,
yes, it’s a
catch and release

there’s another version

there’s another version
of us, a catch and
release, one in which
we are both
experts, armed
only with barbless
hooks. maybe we pose
for a photograph,
but we leave
no other
remnants –
no stress nor injuries –
with eighty-seven percent
chance of survival

in all circumstances

our cells are meant

our cells are meant
to carry more
than their own
weight – it’s
a natural catch-
and-release, like
committing
you to memory

love is a run-on

love is a run-on
pleasure that gathers all
gestures into context

context is a butterfly
net thirty minutes
deep capturing
delicate words

words are small, wild
animals caught
and released
after tagging and
studying them with love

love is a run-on
reverie that needs
no context to roam
