prepping for a snow

between now and

between now and
soon, we will single
out a restaurant
worthy
of our weekend
appetites and not
promise to stop
window-shopping
as we walk home,
stuffed
and discovering
a whole new
dimension
to order envy

it’s feeding time, we

it’s feeding time, we
are doling out
just the right
portions

digestible
morsels of our
past, present,
future – enough
to swallow
whole, racing
to metabolize
one another’s
presence,
happy to be
nine-tenths full

when they told me that

when they told me that
in the future, books would come
in tablets, i imagine
the sucking kind, stories
distilled, collected,
to be held on
the tongue, moved
around in one’s
mouth, maybe slowly
turned, chewed.

the reader becomes
the taste tester, hanging
onto each chapter –
like Texture, Temperature,
Viscosity, Grittiness, and
Palatability. even
before the swallow,
odds are in the story’s
favor for unlocking
interlocking systems

eight-tenths full –

eight-tenths full –
my mother’s
recommendation
in meeting
hunger, in measuring
a well-mannered
portion
of
tea for guests, in
accepting applause,
in greeting life

there is nothing like

at any given moment

at any given moment
on the tongue,
there are subtle
equations being
solved, a mouthful
of knowns and
unknowns
, a study of
polynomials –
in the field of complex
numbers, you cannot
swallow without giving
away a solution or two
