it is stated in countless
handbooks and hazard
identification trainings
that whenever a dust
layer of as little as one-
thirty-second of an
inch accumulates,
immediate cleaning is
warranted to prevent
combustion. i had often

to manage and hold
simplicity, the universe
maps out new

for only one
another’s clicks

for every combination
we try on each other,
there are
at least three
thousand and forty-
two that will no longer

click, and an infinite
number of
combinations
we will still be willing
and sometimes
saving to try

three hundred and
sixty degrees of
forgetting is made
of this kind of
stuff – gossamer
wings and rather
decisive
kisses. countless
rehearsals
later, all
the waiting
glances off
