perhaps this is happening

perhaps this is happening
elsewhere,
not here, in another
universe, where i am
asking you to
consider wanting
more, puncturing
holes into all the
memories that held
us so that we can spill
everything, everything
and not feel so
delicate. perhaps this is
happening elsewhere.
that’s not what’s
happening here

it’s a delicate

it’s a delicate
balance, wanting
to jump
ship or stay
put. freshness
holds tonight
and maybe tomorrow
night hostage,
says very little

we woke up to
the truth that there
will always be
longing between
us, a surround-
sound of something

when hearts
are already
intricately tied

in the middle of
the night, opening and
closing a door without
waking the household

watchmaker, a
master craftsman
with the ability to
compress nanoseconds
into seconds with
a measured
turn of the
wrist, quiet
hinges with
a look – i am
averse to watches,
you are a light
sleeper. all
bets are off
when nature calls

time tries on each

time tries on each
forecast as if they
were delicate
capes, not to be
messed with, balled
up nor wrinkled.
we are much
too rough
when given
the chance

trying not to be

trying not to be
torn is a delicate
thing – nine times
out of ten, they
advise you to
go with the
flow, yield
to prevent more
injury –
we are all
doing the best
we can

beyond kisses, if

beyond kisses, if
i were to shimmy out of
the last layer of

delicacy between us,
we would soon find our rhythm
