perhaps after one

perhaps after one
too many seasons of sweeping
away the fallen

hibiscus syriacus
blossoms, we got tired of death

because you love me

because you love me
i have fallen
into the habit of
being taken
in, there
are places that
suspicion will
no longer go

we have fallen into

we have fallen into
sweeping things
under the rug
as though we
were married
to the suburbs
with our one
point six kids,
labradoodle,
a prius
and the other.
if this isn’t
love, i don’t
know what is

in flight, we appear

in flight, we appear
fairly different from
one another – judging
by the wingspan,
the beat of our
song
, the pattern
of colors against
the sky. when
falling, however,
we appear
just like the last –
a memory, a shot
in the dark, one long,
colorless flutter
.
