we are always one

we are always one
round away from winning or
defeat, cards up our

sleeves or in full display, it
matters less when you’re having fun

the space in between

there’s a stark difference

there’s a stark difference
between the first and second,
sometimes fifth, time you

play a game – we all dabble
in rule interpretation

in the middle of

in the middle of
playing the longest board game –
the realization

that the strategy’s always been
to do the least harm and still win

Goombas and Koopa

three days before heading
home, a ball of nerves
tumbles in the chest,
jostled and batted around
like the best
game of post-election
pinball ever played,
where the score is
already in the trillions,

and all the flashing
lights, bells and noise-
makers seem to only make
the ball move faster –
keeping up is essentially
adding so many
zeroes and counting on
that slingshot save

childhood friends –
rock, paper, scissors –
agreeing to one-up
each other for the
rest of eternity,
building strength
to face the rest of it all

state-space complexity of
you and me becomes

reachable, even if we

something comfy,
a place where we can
call out safe!
for the games
we will
play into
eternity – darling,
you’re my base
