all day, the rain falls

all day, the rain falls
in brooklyn like a fugue,
repeating the same
theme on its way
down – ledge, leaf,
rung, stoop,
ledge, leaf, rung,
stoop, ledge,
leaf, rung, stoop –
rubato-
ing and
accelerando-ing
together
with the ease of
a seasoned symphony

you and i reflect

you and i reflect
one another, imperfectly,
like glass mosaics,

a shimmering geometry,
intricate in every shade

in a complicated

in a complicated
world, the brain learns
to process data
through shortcuts –
the three sustained
horns from a passing
truck summon
Mathis der Maler,
the lingering cologne
in the stairwell, two
lifetimes ago,
the lady in the park
with pigeons
and
other stereotypes –
neurons will fire
in synchrony
to fill in the
superstitions
and fears

we made the switch

we made the switch
just past the
treehouse, and
no one said a word.
as far as the stop-
and-go timing of
these early
courtships was
concerned, it was
often as complicated
as executing a
well-envisioned
stunt – even
in retrospect,
there were so
many arguments
for success
