if the universe

if the universe
were a packaging machine,
would we have a say
in how we were picked up,
folded and flipped, traversing
axes we only read about
in engineering
textbooks, so that
when you and i bump
into one another
in the middle of
grand central, time
is meant
to stand still, nothing
breaks, and no one
calls for the job setter

watch us engineer

i don’t love you any

i don’t love you any
more or less than
you deserve – wouldn’t
that be nice, securing
my heart as a lever
for your heart

on any given

on any given
day, there is
untapped
energy just
beneath
the surface

frayed
edges from
yesterday’s
exchange, creep
corrosion on
the spine, and
extreme
pressures
and temperature
fluctuations
on the soul.

as of this writing,
a team of world-renowned
electrochemical engineers
have checked into their
hotel. two by two, they
will learn to work things
out and present their
findings on societal
needs in support of a
sustainable future

we build bodies

we build bodies
to live in, structures
to last, and age
is a moving
target, engineered
to see us through
