the temptation to

your collective

your collective
decision
to mark
the change in our
environment is tied
to what we see
and what we
don’t see, what
we say yes to
and what we deny

we scoop out the best

we scoop out the best
of these lucky days to share
with one another,

knowing that there’s enough to
go around when we cherish

every third hour, there

every third hour, there
is a slow sliding into
contentment, or an

okayness with the world, being
alive is a navigation

it turns out that our

it turns out that our
arms cannot keep one
another’s dragons
at bay. the evenings
are the hardest, as we
climb into bed, carrying
this new weight. the
mornings are the hardest,
as we wake up most
vulnerable, bracing
for a bruising day.

are the hardest, as we
try out every combination
of love and resistance,
endeavoring not to harm
each other in every way

let us focus on being

to see the light,
to find a reason
for bringing
our pieces closer

in a parallel

in a parallel
universe, it is still the
weekend, and because
we live comfortably
and are doing something
as normal as holding
a garage sale,
we are worried
about the color
of our skin
over the
commonality
of sharing
perceived treasures

and painstaking
cultivation, there
will be differences
in response, variations
in growth, and
deviations to
the degree in
which one turns
towards the dark

for all the data

for all the data
we collect from one
another, day to
day, minute
to minute, perhaps
we are building
a universal
reference on
ourselves, as if
there could be
a perfect equation
to calculate the
gravitational tug
from person to
person, something
we can keep
in our back pocket
