across two calendars
the anniversary of his
death has begun, on the
fifth of january, in
this lunar new year
four-thousand-and-
eleven. there are
advantages to
measuring time
this way, but losing
someone twice
each year is
immeasurable

there is magic in

there is magic in
a leap year, whether
we receive an extra
day or month. there
is latitude and
longitude to stretch
out these lengthy,
ancillary memories.
there is allowance
to indulge
, to
slip away to that
corner of our
brain that is not
averse to trying
something new,
just for today,
just this year

there are a handful

there are a handful
of things
about keeping
time that leaves
uncertainty –
springing forward,
falling back,
marking the
certainty
of your death
on two calendars.
if tonight’s moon
looks like the same
moon that took
you, give
us a sign that
time will move on
