every third hour, there
is a slow sliding into
contentment, or an

here is a reminder

here is a reminder
in the middle of
a wintry afternoon
that i do not deserve
you – my legs
wrapped up so
carefully in
your legs, and for
a small, exposed
piece of me that still
strays with the
inescapable
draft in the room,
a warm hand lands,
perches, massages
periodically into
that tickle threshold,
in case i were not
already completely
yours, present

when stars align, the

monday morning, Dad

monday morning, Dad
took me to see The Great Fish
in all his splendor

we were early, only a
handful of cares in the world

there ought

there ought
to be more
synapses
reminding us
to be joyous,
to mull over
tenderness,
to plunge
into love, to hold
contentment
a breath longer –
there ought
to be time
stretched out
for this,
suspended,
and even
then, still
a little more
