every solitude

every solitude
is cushioned, protected, held
one inch from an ask

distance magnifies

distance magnifies
the need – i am saying it
without saying it,

the way that you have taught me
just as many years ago

every time we come

every time we come
back together, after spending
many moons apart,

there is a collective sigh,
a letting go of defenses

and so it is, i

and so it is, i
am once again
over- and under-
thinking things like
you without a primer,
over- and under-
sensing the range for
exploration, the
extent to which
we can still
fumble,
over- and under-
flexing the muscle
that gets me most
in trouble

maybe absence is

maybe absence is
also a form of
violence. for
those who have
experienced more
or less, i can only
nearly imagine
how it is absolutely
not. please forgive
me for accepting
how much it stings

on the edge of daylight

on the edge of daylight
saving, i am mostly
awake, lodged in
the trilateration of
past, present, and
future, in search
of a fourth
time. i experiment
with pouring tea – a cup
in present-past is at once
cooler than a cup in
present-future. i
experiment with the
newly nesting thoughts
of you – and arrive
and arrive again at
unknown coordinates

distance is the great

distance is the great
revealer – you are miles and miles
and miles away, i

am weaving such a tale, heavy
with details, just to reach you
