we are all

happiness is

happiness is
painted in
shades of
recognition –
a familiar
sound, distinct
properties at
the tip of the
tongue
, a
similar gesture,
time and space
pressed together

in this part of the

in this part of the
country, the sun
unfurls
a heated
wet blanket, an
oshibori of sorts,
as a gesture of
summer’s arrival.
there is, however,
little courtesy
involved, and
the only thing
that feels
wrung are our
withering bodies

there is nothing like

there is nothing like
putting on a good
robe to meet the
light
– every
turn is a flowing
gesture, every
movement a
sashay, and
life is warm,
a fading texture

i have lost

i have lost
count the times
i’ve had to
fold love
into a
semblance of
a friendly
gesture –
a thoughtful
harmless thing,
considerably
accommodating,
just the right
amount of
attentive – no
more than the times
you’ve understood

there are memories

there are memories
that dazzle
in their
transparency, their
detailed
elegance.

there are
memories
that carve
each
gesture
into fierce blooms.

the more we cling
to these frozen
sculpted things
,
the more we find
them abandoning
shape, losing
meaning
right between
our frost-
nipped hands
.
