we all crack sooner

just beneath drama

just beneath drama
lie layers of understanding
and misunderstanding.
their syllables rub
against one
another, try to
create new sounds,
conjure meanings

where there are clotheslines,

where there are clotheslines,
there are people falling in
love, dangling to

be heard, trapped, comically
swinging into and apart

i want to break

i want to break
it to you slowly,
quickly, every
other second
like i am two
selves vying
for the same

plot twist –
you laugh, but
you don’t see
it coming

in every transaction, there

in every transaction, there
is a Frank and Claire
the business of
discomfort promises
never a dull
moment, or is it
the other way
around – it takes very
little, much less, to feel
like you belong

the neighbors upstairs

the neighbors upstairs
are rehearsing their
three a.m. scene
again – two
pairs of god-given
lungs made of the
same brilliant mettle,
awake and stirringly
alive, a private

at least twenty
families – he thinks
she’s overly
dramatic, she
thinks he should
go to hell, and
the majority of
the action
creaks stage left
