there are many hows

there are many hows
to securing the past and
sometimes present, not

so many clues to locking
on, safeguarding the future

nearly three decades

nearly three decades
later, we are still finding
hidden things within

your depths, stirring the surface
for clues in each fleeting fold

here are the cells

here are the cells
hanging onto those
memories of stepping
into the light in your
bedroom, with all the
immensity that comes
with introductions.
each remaining
mitochondria draws
towards the east-facing
bay windows, as if
there were still
something left to
break down, turn
into new nostalgia.
each golgi apparatus
looks for clues at
the edges of a peripheral
vision too shy to be
curious, while pretending
to be bold on that
particular afternoon.
to tell the truth, all
nuclei begin to lose
the integrity of a
moment recalled
as soon as the
moment is recalled

for every instance

for every instance
we discover the limits
of the real world, we
stumble upon clues
that there could be more

i still keep my doubts

i still keep my doubts
tuned in to your frequency,
routinely check the
mics and speakers for clues – the
static is unbearable
