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

who and what we are

between broken and

between broken and
fixed, there’s a perfect bath – let’s
meet in the middle,

drive ourselves crazy – look, the
mirrors are starting to fog

you keep the sonnets

you keep the sonnets
in the freezer,
i have seen
them.
it makes sense
to serve them
cold, eventually
fixed, crystalline
lines bonding
so naturally,
wrapped
around the volta,
one nibble
away
from melting
on the tongue

my father’s hands

my father’s hands
defy the rules of
logic, physics,
and the lifetime
of retiring
machine parts.
as good as
new
is just a
phrase rattling,
clanking, echoed
in other households.
in ours, silence
speaks steadfast

three-hundred-

three-hundred-
and-sixty-five
days, we drift
in and out of
fixed kisses,
a steady
routine –

at the threshold,
before bedtime,
on birthdays,
under the
mistletoe, and
still, in
gratitude –

but at closer
inspection,
we do not
recognize each
other in each other,
and we have
stopped trying
