sometimes the people

sometimes the people
we need are the people we
leave out, taking for

granted availability,
access, some kind of allegiance

on a pork shoulder

on a pork shoulder
kind of afternoon, wishes
are granted loosely,

promises fulfilled, and every
minute finger-lickin’ sweet

for every year we

for every year we
celebrate, we are forced to
let go of a hand-

ful of gestures we have taken
for granted, time after time

by the fourth

by the fourth
generation, you
either start to
slack or you get
better
. no matter
what they tell
you, there is
always a margin
for error. on
the other hand,
there is no
solution for the
lackluster tone
in summing up
history as if it
were for granted

as a species, we

as a species, we
press our luck, bury
ourselves in
making a living,
deterred and
undeterred

by the risk of
making an
impact, at
the rate of
unforeseeable
lifetimes

backs of our throats
like a smooth
conversation,
not to be taken
for granted

a closer inspection

a closer inspection
on the finer things
reveals a gap –
a loss of words,
a chink in the armor,
a tilt misplaced –
on the corner of
living and living it up,
the coast is not
clear, and it will
have to be awhile
before you can
head home again

i suppose we never saw it

i suppose we never saw it
truly the way you saw
it
– this is what it means
when we hear people say
they take it for granted.
on a day to day basis, the
gift of living somehow
chooses us, and maybe
half of the time, we act
as if we’ve been
shoved, the act of
breathing forced
down into our lungs.
yes, it’s more subtle
than that, much more
subtle. try to hold
one breath and
piece it together
