after one too many

after one too many
cheerful reviews from
the industry about
industry products, a
renewed realization
that the media was
meant to sell more
media, and there
weren’t meant to
be many choices
beyond tuning in

every twenty-first

every twenty-first
wintry afternoon, allow us
to storm a lemon

poppy seed castle, fingers
glazed, mouths sweet and victorious

in the matrix, we

in the matrix, we
measure time in spoonfuls of
summertime – outside,

we drill holes into the snowbanks
to recover a bit of heat

you are watching the

you are watching the
latest martial arts darling
in asian cinema, something
enigmatic, poetic,
reserved, i am wavering
between accepting and
rejecting myself for not
being as intoxicated,
enraptured by this
exotic intrigue.
there is a fine pretense
between belonging and
not belonging, i can’t
solve for the variables
while holding myself
at arm’s length

at the movies, we
recognize that life’s
choices are both
limited and
vast, juggling
blockbusters with
something to chew on

saturday matinee,

doing laundry, we

doing laundry, we
always dance
the folding of
bedsheets –
for the moments
not caught
on film or gathered
together, corner
to corner, by
ever-changing
pixels, i
have you,
pleating these
memories

the difference between

the difference between
me and you
is cinematic –
when the opening
credits roll and an
invisible band begins
to build logarithmic
rapport with 500-watt
surround, we can
sit back and fall
for the disparities
or find ways to
unplug the system,
update the user
experience

Buster Keaton, fueled
by four thousand pipes
passing silent memories
of you underneath
Moorish stars

life finds its lull by the lapping

life finds its lull by the lapping
waters – our bodies succumb
to our embryonic instincts to float,
the muscles in our faces loosen, and
there is more play, better laughter.

not since Jaws has there been
a mass-produced fear associated
with these afternoons. not since Einstein
on the Beach
was there a need to check
our watches, quantify the time spent
