three days before heading

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,
you’re playing right
into enemy territory,
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

games, playing to
lose is half the fun,
half the arsenal

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

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

three days into your

three days into your
starcraft weight-
loss program, you are
buzzed, and i am
twisting desperation
into a shimmering
strategic mesh,
waiting to save
you from the next
protoss rush
