here we are, feeling

here we are, feeling
foreign again –
the door you
can breeze
through is closed

not expecting you
to remember,
to buck science

growth charts
are often the
most inescapable

up her coat, stands
by the doorway

and waits for the
appropriate moment
to bow out, pulling
absently on her
cinnamon gloves

fear of flying, part 2

a sign with a bold magic marker
name, under tight lips a matching
magic marker line – like angels
of death finally coming to pick
us up – from our wager with the skies

trading furtive glimpses
through a calculated
slice of doorway
