in one way

in one way
or another,
we are all tethered
to greedland,
eating it up
in the same
fashion, trying
to set ourselves
apart by how
cleanly we wipe
our chins
after the feast

after long exposures,
the body naturally
establishes shortcuts,
fashions new
corridors to ease
the journey,
all the while, keeping
the same distance

center of the universe,
happy to break it

so i am currently in
your book for saying
things that i can
never take back.
you know as well
as i, love falls
into the most
fashionable
patterns, and
only sometimes
does worn
resemble
comfort,
we should be
so lucky. for
now, let’s tighten
the rhinestone
belt a notch
and forget this

regret sits in the

regret sits in the
driveway, hangs from
the doorknob, catches
some sun on the
wardrobe, listens in
when someone uses
the word garbage.
on the other hand,
regret sits in the
car lot, hangs in
the department store,
catches some sun

heart discards point
two megabytes of broken
data
per second, leaving
a distinct taste of loss
in the air for sixteen
seconds just right after –
and should a lucky poet
be passing by, packing
a pair of powder-
free latex gloves and

pinch the fallen
fragments, take them
home to rinse and
hang-dry for a week,
before refashioning
them into something
useful to a beating
heart again
