yes, trading in new

yes, trading in new
habits for old is as effort-
less as exhaling –

let’s try out new things together
as long as we can go back

not knowing whether

not knowing whether
we have it in us or not
and still trying is

perhaps farther than we could
have imagined traveling

while in persimmon

we experiment

we experiment
with tradition, just enough
to go off course and

still arrive safely together
at the same destination

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

every now and then,

every now and then,
we try another way of
doing things – it takes

some kind of fine chemistry
to be brave, experiment

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

connecting and

connecting and
disconnecting takes
courage –
we experiment
with our words
in pencil, as
if we could
be more sure
with time

in between sleep,

in between sleep,
darkness fingers my
thoughts, conducting
a double blind
taste test – this one,
yes, this one is
real, and
not that one
– and
there is no bias,
no preferred
treatment. even
the first sign of
morning reveals
no answers

you are slightly late,

you are slightly late,
i am slightly early –
somewhere
on a floor just
above us, over
the hum of two
fluorescent bulbs,
someone is plotting
these data points
across multiple
axes
, sipping the last
of Tuesday’s
coffee, closing the
folder on why
we never meet –
the sudden draft
is mesmerizing

i love you in controlled

i love you in controlled
settings, where some
elements remain solid in
solution while others
dissolve to saturation.
we never measure
allegiance through return
on investment, but on
a chemical level, our
bonds vibrate under
the refracted light
passing through
the fishbowl
