teeter-tottering
on the edges of feelings,
the corners of thought,

there is a likelihood of
losing oneself, unraveling

one rarely feels

forty-three hours have

forty-three hours have
passed since we lost you. i hide
the details
from my-

self, don’t get too close to the
edges for fear of falling

do you want to stop?

do you want to stop?
often comes wrapped
in the most helplessly
luring smile. saying it
and not saying it
is a satin ribbon
on its way to rounding
all the edges so that
the present is secured,
and the future
holds surprises in store

it takes two to stack

it takes two to stack
silence, straighten
up the edges
periodically
for a shape to
emerge, one
that we can
point towards
each other,
simultaneously
daring and bracing
for a topple

if we were to press

if we were to press
into the possibilities,
time would put on
his favorite
cloak, allow
its edges to
brush every
temptation, leaving
a trail of
portals behind

the edge of the bed

the edge of the bed
traps dreams
the way glass
seemingly traps
water before it
overflows. you
are asleep and on
the other side,
i am on this side
still feeling for the
edges of dreaming
