if potatoes, then

if potatoes, then
deliciousness – there is only
a small number of

if-then statements that remain
true nine-tenths of a casserole

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: if-then

as of this moment,

as of this moment,
i am one-ninety-eighth whole,
having splintered at

each major fork in the road,
still finding a way back to you

two-thirds of the time,

two-thirds of the time,
we do not follow any
recipes, having

long preferred using the taste
test, nurturing words, common sense

every one-sixty-

every one-sixty-

of a signal,
miscalculate

sensation, allowing
for a natural

buildup –
some days become
just noise, some
years, irretrievable

a sliver of each
day spent finding
fault in others
is a slice
of a
lifetime lost
for one’s own
reflection

held for a fraction
longer, i am a slow
extension of
myself, allowing
you to catch
brief flashes of
me, unprepared,
susceptible,
an obvious blur
