recognizing only a splinter

recognizing only a splinter
of a fragment of how
the observable
universe works, i am stuck
wondering if somewhere,
in the constellation
hydra
, someone has
looked out her window
for the last time, a witness
to the collision, ouroboros
.

during the Perseids,

during the Perseids,
my heart wanders back to
January 2012,
predawn, unreasonably
cold, cutting
our teeth on the
Quandrantids,
and how
crisp every wish
sounded, riding
to the airport, caught
between staying
and leaving,
and disregarding
these astronomical
hints to impact events
.

the heart plays traffic

the heart plays traffic
cop along the streets of the
city
, directing
and redirecting figure
eights to avoid a collision –
that bench, the pizza
joint, that corner
where we petitioned
for more time

some spend seven

some spend seven
lifetimes perfecting
a relationship.
the temptation to
swerve becomes ever
greater the closer
you come to touching.
this has been traced
and retraced
as an accepted
hypothesis in
Newton’s lost manual,
Amor Naturalis
Principia Mathematica
