on fifth avenue,
you can be nowhere-bound, nothing
presses against you,

waiting to be saved, wanting
to be discovered, nothing

appetite than appropriate,
more false abstention than sense

not being able
to ever put the genie
back in the bottle

means having to consider
new wishes, new desires

the air around us

the air around us
tremble before we touch, it
happens every time –

molecules pushing aside
other molecules for a kiss

to eat sourdough bread alone –

to stuff errant thoughts in, pits
to catch and twist tender fancies

after acquiring
wings, there is a longing for
wires, a net, solid

as i fall towards the earth
