everything that is

everything that is
magical about a train
ride is not the train

ride – i stare out the window,
penn station to penn station,

new york city to
baltimore, the moving pictures
shimmer, cast long spells

we have all been left

we have all been left
dangling in one form or
another – life and

death guarantee little else
but a solid adventure

the hours gather

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

an anthology of

an anthology of
moments is much
simpler
than, say,
the anthology
of a moment –
here you are
collecting
me, cataloguing
the turn of
a phrase,
a glance,
lips, a strand
of hair,
preserving
the best of
my form,
appendixing
the rest –
sometimes,
it tickles,
but we’d be
hard-pressed
to change a thing
