across the distance
of countless shores, feelings get
clogged up, polluted

by proximate priorities –

some days, you bump into

some days, you bump into
words you should have known
all along – kenchinjiru,
syndemic, awumbuk
you wondered how
you never longed
for them, a
kaukokaipuu

two-and-a-
half feelings away
from being
unstuck has
become a lengthy

away from being
unstuck is as sound
a visitor as any

like honey to flies,
slowing down each
thought, arresting
those golden wings
