sunrise over green

we will arrive and

we will arrive and
depart on a tilt, the earth’s
gravity pulling

us into a strangled embrace,
the light only inches away

because i bent this

because i bent this
far this morning, i
expected
and forgot
to ask you to do
the same, stretch
just a little
towards me,
and allow the
weight of
everything else
to carry you
all the way

day 8 sounds and looks

day 8 sounds and looks
a lot like day 7, aspires
to day 9, 19,

maybe even 90, feels
the gravity of day 1

by the window seat

by the window seat
of something like
love, we cultivate
appreciation, consider
the mechanics to
lifting and being
lifted, scrutinize
the depth of our
aimless goodwill

we are all at once

we are all at once
secure and insecure
about the space
between us –
with no agreed upon
unit of measurement,
we have to
negotiate every
vibration, adapt
to each curve,
swallow words
in different
combinations and feel
the push and pull
of acceleration
with a new gravity

the science of an

the science of an
entire galaxy is
within each of us –
when your mother called
to say you’ve left
this world,
gravity shifted

for all the data

for all the data
we collect from one
another, day to
day, minute
to minute, perhaps
we are building
a universal
reference on
ourselves, as if
there could be
a perfect equation
to calculate the
gravitational tug
from person to
person, something
we can keep
in our back pocket

we check our watches

we check our watches
quickly and slowly, as if
we were astronauts

beyond escape velocity,
pulling a fast one on time

on one hand, nothing

on one hand, nothing
is suspect, on the other
hand, everything is –

we are bound by our promises,
weighed down by acquired wings
