home as a haven

home as a haven
and home as a
prison are well-worn
tropes that still require
tinted glasses
with at least
seventy percent
light transmittance

perhaps the eighth most

perhaps the eighth most
dangerous thing for a spider
in the shower is

a girl without her glasses
on – compassion plays no part

i do not know when

i do not know when
these rose-colored
glasses fell
away from my
face – maybe it was
during some kind of
skirmish, maybe i
slipped them off
between gazing
over there
and looking right
here,
so that i could
see more clearly

in my dreams, i

in my dreams, i
have a pair of
glasses that pinches
me awake. i put it
on, and only you
disappear

almost ten

almost ten
years later, and you
are still a mystery
same shirt, same
apron, perhaps
a heavier prescription

where are your

where are your
glasses now
that you are not
here
to wear them?

i can see them so clearly:

riding on the chest
of a tourist

dangling between
slim fingers in a bakery

hiding
underneath a pillow

suntanning
by the windowsill

or lined up like
abandoned things
in the top drawer of
your corner desk
still waiting

when was the last
time you
touched them?
