yes, january

yes, january
can camouflage with the best
of them, disguising

its appearance to blend in with
what we hope will be a new year

your hands are

your hands are
masters of
disguises, discovered
this morning, still
resting
in the
shape of a dream-
catcher
, waiting
for the first
rays of sun
to relieve them

time is disguised

time is disguised
under multiple
clock faces – as if
we would get weary
of checking for it

two-and-a-half months

two-and-a-half months
after you passed,
the news was kept
folded, signed
but unsent.
when reality is held
suspended
in
equilibrium, emptiness
is pinned in disguise

an ultimatum is often

an ultimatum is often
delivered with the disguised
voice used in the most
inexperienced and
the most skilled of
hostage situations –
a long and cool
knife, ever sharpening
over a sliver
of bound hope

in not asking me to
choose, you have already
hardened the choices
