wednesday night, you are

wednesday night, you are
hand-rolling sushi with us,
guiding us through each

ingredient, so that nothing
and maybe everything falls out

forty-three hours have
passed since we lost you. i hide
the details
from my-

self, don’t get too close to the
edges for fear of falling

here is the part where

we spend time mostly

we spend time mostly
on the derivatives of
falling – from lines to

loose patterns, love rounding the
corner is the sharpest kind

at the end of the

a couple of inches

a couple of inches
off the ground, and
we are alive, riding
high, superhuman
and delirious, nearly
forgetting that
the moment
lasts as long as
we hold on –
but not that tight

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

you are leaning over, a silver

you are leaning over, a silver
lining fastened to your
endless curves, a memory
clung to your back:
the broad visage of a sky wedged
between towering buildings,
a creaking fire
escape for the mornings,
and just enough
space for the nights.
i am in love
with this tunneling, this always
looking up
and into,
this falling
that never bruises
