each time you pull

for dad

each time you pull
out a special tool
for fixing the things
that break, you teach
us how to hold
the problem in
our hands, engage
in solutions, find
the edges of
every rule.
equipped with
a lifetime of
tools, we still
find your love
immeasurable

less than eight hours

less than eight hours
after you arrive, everything
gets fixed – that leaking

faucet, a broken zipper,
the rickety chair, our hearts

we are building

we are building
a toolbox molded
for our discrete
facts and figures,
small and light
enough to carry
on remote
journeys, but
varied enough
for the times when
things appear
too broken
for duct tape

you remember the

you remember the
time we broke the
bed like it was forty-
six minutes
ago and coasting on
the high to hammer
in each tee nut
while i went in
search of that
alien wrench.
somehow, we made
it back here just
in time to spoon
that waning
slope into the
sunset, leaning
into our divine
convergence
