they seal off the herb

they seal off the herb
garden
every winter to
protect us from the

elements and not the other
way around – meaningless soup

i made you say i

i made you say i
love you
so
i wouldn’t have to
guess. when i feed it
to the spectrometer
tonight, we will be
able to analyze
purity versus
pressure, measure the
intensity of each peak.
for this, the organic
chemistry lab was
worth the pretty penny

nine times out of

nine times out of
ten, we approach each
other without knowing
the mettle of which
we are made. even
after years of testing
one another,
acknowledging as many
variables as our hearts
can hold, we will stumble
upon the end of
things and realize
that we failed to detect
the significance of one or
more properties,
overlooked the
hard spots that
we thought were
holding us together

we are all more or
less an electron away
from becoming
stable, brushing
against and resisting
one another’s
electromagnetic force

we were all strangers

we were all strangers
once – for the brave,
the opportunity comes
more often –
a combination
of fear and
joy, a malleable
unease
to forge into
laughter

it takes a certain

it takes a certain
kind of chemistry to make
things so delicate

between us – i was never
one to emit visible

light when excited –
given our ionizing
natures, it will take

more than an old flame test to
identify these unknowns
