the duration of

the duration of
enchantment for shiny,
new things cannot
easily be
calculated – yes,
there is a
shelf-life, undoubtedly,
but the expiration
date is intentionally
hard to find
or even to decipher

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: decipher

maybe it is as

maybe it is as
you say –
the unfamiliar
becomes familiar
after some time.
and so,
when i look
at you, every
atom intentionally
turns
three-quarters
resistant, enough
to preserve that
mystery, stay
inescapably
enchanted

here is the litmus
test that indicates
everything and
captures entire
cities with its
standard unfurling
you are my
enchantment, i
want nothing
to get past you

the truth is always
more nuanced
because falling
into each other
is a singular
moment, staying
takes some sort
of enchantment

my dad passed down the love

my dad passed down the love
for Volkswagens the way
folks passed on their
ancestry – one vibrant
story at a time
. and
traveling through the
milestones in a VW
or two certainly
stoked the enchantment

in my parent’s house

in my parent’s house
i wake up to the
sounds of
heart pine steel
whispering as not
to wake me, soft
padding of
footsteps in the
hall, across the kitchen

in my parent’s house
we are held
between
heart pine steel
reinforced by
the breathing columns
shuttling in and out of
our particular
nucleus, like bio-
macromolecules
trying to make a living

in my parent’s home
they are
heart pine steel
every morning
beauty
every evening
warmth – and
everything is anchored
effortlessly
like some
sort of enchantment
