suddenly and not
so suddenly, we are on
two sides of the same
coin – only
when tossed into
the air will we
perchance catch
glimpses
of one another,
heavyhearted

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: glimpses

the day before looks

the day before looks
longingly at the day after,
or is it really

the other way around? we
are like coins, spinning in the air

i am alive in

i am alive in
the first of february,
equally hopeful

and terrified, appealing
for someone to palm life’s coin

plus or minus some

plus or minus some
forgetfulness, we learn to
flip a coin for love,

giving it a few more tosses
for the sake of affirmation

forgetting and

forgetting and
remembering are two
sides of the same
coin – there is
no remembering
without forgetting,
a lightening

waking and dreaming

waking and dreaming

same coin –
every curve,
every raised detail

knowing and not

we’ve been here before –

if there were a time

if there were a time
to melt down, i would
gladly
seize the last
three-hundred-and-
seventy-two
days, bring them
to a simmering
boil, cool and mold
them into a
commemorative
coin and give it
away to someone
who collects pain

if there were a time
to melt down, i would
not give it away
