let us focus on being

let us focus on being
whole though not
any less
broken together –
it takes a good
demolition
to see the light,
to find a reason
for bringing
our pieces closer

our bodies into
brilliant focus –

when happiness
zooms in, there
is nowhere to
run nor take
cover
. every
minute is
crisp, and we
want to spend
them on one
another, a
radiant exposure

on the opposite

on the opposite
side of the track, you rivet
me, and as the train
rushes into the station
early, the eye is electric
performing a swift
jigsaw puzzling of
your face, arms,
legs, look, pose
, then
putting them back
together again, linked
in slivers
of glass and gaps
between coupled
cars, a classic
theme and variation

patterns are formed by
keeping some things just
slightly out of focus
i have lost count of
the times we’ve looked
away, changed the
subject, grinned and
bore it. that in itself
is simple mathematics,
our structured denial

according to the
National Center for
Atmospheric
Research
, on a fair
day, a cumulus
cloud can stampede
across the horizon
with the weight of
one hundred
elephants. all day
long, i am pulling

leading the herd –
small wonder
awareness gets
crushed when
i stumble

here – eighty-six days later

but as these things go,
there is some
withering, a methodic
fading
, and yesterday,
we noticed that we
cast longer shadows

on the calendar that begins
with you, we have
marked through eighty-six
mornings and countless nights.
i have already put away every
orchid that grew old and
every bud that did not
open. i will hold onto
these memories as if they
were ashes that did not
make it into your tomb

eighty-six days later, we still
prefer to keep the vital
signs just out of
focus
, like putting on
Spring, codifying
silences, leaning on
simple mathematics to
make up the difference
between having
and not
having you
