here are the corners

here are the corners
that corner me, still –
i keep these
moments dog-
eared, already
yearning to return

around the corners

around the corners
of comfort, scabs and scars – that’s
how it’s always been

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
