teeter-tottering

teeter-tottering
on the edges of feelings,
the corners of thought,

there is a likelihood of
losing oneself, unraveling

a handful of hours

a handful of hours
before sunrise,
your thumb
has discovered
the outer
corners of my
pinky. i have
forgotten
where triggers
go to hide

i know, and now you

i know, and now you
know, how this will go –
there will be
one week when i will
be indecisive about emptying
the wicker trash bin in the
bedroom, months when i
will avoid vacuuming
one or two corners of the
apartment for fear of
erasing you, a year or
five may go by before i
walk down that street
or head to the cloisters
again, and still, there
will be pockets within
minutes
, here and there,
when i will, without so
many words, bump into
the feeling the last time…
was with you
over and
over, until you become
like a fragrance from
lifetimes before

perhaps falling in

perhaps falling in
love is a zombie
parasite that
turns us onto
city streets –
i am rounding
similar corners
for the ninety-fifth
time, seeing and
not seeing, feeding
parallel dreams

how to capture this

how to capture this
and not put it into words –
every corner of

the universe curls, vignettes
when you look at me like that

it starts with a

it starts with a
preference to forget,
curves around an
inclination or two,
pauses at the
corners of affection,
excitement, and despair,
slides undetected
between the minutes
right before and the
minutes just after,
unwinds itself from
the pillars of
belief and disbelief,
lets go
