in every moment

in every moment
of forgetting, hearts splinter,
words look for throats in

which to get caught, hands clasp and
unclasp, learn to build bridges

all day, i keep

all day, i keep
forgetting that you
left us this morning,
and even now, when
i quiet my heart to
take in the news, i
hear old news, when
you called eight years
ago to say that he’s
gone, and do not be
sad, it was so peaceful,
you were reading to him
as he sat in his favorite
chair, and then
you were reading.
tonight, i am not ready
for the details just yet.
there are no brave
messengers. you are
gone, but not yet gone

every third hour, there

every third hour, there
is a slow sliding into
contentment, or an

okayness with the world, being
alive is a navigation

sooner or later,

sooner or later,
or for some time already,
we will find ourselves
in the same shoes, one
against the faceless
many who conjure
corporate legalese
that secures them
a place at the table –
in the board room,
we are all little men,
forgetting
and unforgetting
we do this to ourselves

forgetting and

forgetting and
remembering are two
sides of the same
coin – there is
no remembering
without forgetting,
a lightening
of the heart

every twenty-third

every twenty-third
day, the thought of you cancels
out the other days –

how to submit without giving
in, give in without submitting

there are things you know

efforts to rescue

sooner or later,

sooner or later,
the line will blur
between real
and imagined –
we all buckle
under a similar
reminisce of
the moon
