turn – even
the edges of
each floorboard
long for your weight

slipped into her
lab coat to conduct
a dissection of

the anatomy of a long
weekend in winter
is dissected
under the intense
infrared lamp of the
sun, juxtaposed by
the cooling of the earth,
like warm skin
on stainless steel.

in the mornings
to indulge and
dissect our words,
overlook
