on the last day of
november, it’s near sixty
degrees fahrenheit,

autumn pauses its camouflage
unsure of which way to turn

there are variations
to being captured,
degrees to which
the spirit vibrates,
put away the ruler

we make our way

we make our way
into the morning
in the manner of
stars filling in
the night sky –
in degrees,
subconsciously
evaluating the
distance between
one another for
structural integrity,
holding it in
holding it together

on the scale of zero

on the scale of zero
to infinity, we are all in
variant degrees
drowning. what
distinguishes us
is the scale to
which you or i
can actually
save one another
from each other

in varying degrees of
alive, we stand
together
, alone.
the elements press
in around us – also
at varying
degrees –
and no one
is the wiser

(for jm)

what follows are three-
hundred-and-sixty-degrees
of possibilities, tailored
to address our adventuring needs:
days that open a little more
slowly; a horizon that cranes
her neck to provide a view; a city
that bunches up her skirt; a town
that lets her hair down; time
bathing like an indiscernible
insect; and friends
who resonate
like the best kind of
sticky songs
