you are

you are
gone, and we
are oceans
away, separated
by a global
pandemic, mandated
group quarantine, time,
electromagnetic
frequencies, and
chemical structure
the x, y, and z of
everyday coordinates
dissolve into more,
even more
dimensions as
memories discharge

i imagine it

i imagine it
happens as if it were
just another day –
waking to find that the heart
can shift so naturally,
it will have yet to register
new coordinates,
transfer utilities

love takes

love takes
technique
the way
you round the
corner may be
wider than mine,
but once we get
the coordinates
down, it’s just
a matter of time

let us consider

let us consider
everything
at this latitude –
at least twelve
luminous decimal
places out – stuff
the lining of our
dreams with
their Cartesian
accompaniments,
unpack the frame
underneath us,
and never stop
rubbing our
coordinates
together
to spark
love’s discovery

for every longitude

for every longitude
crossed
for the very
first time, the brain
pushes through a
limit of compilation,
draws a new doodle
to symbolize this
street, this corner,
this hand-holding.
for every latitude,
we break down in
laughter, spin
the compass
