it’s no small thing

it’s no small thing –
observing that the
heart must
break. the pieces
have already
been carefully
measured,
weighed,
sometimes
parceled out over
time
– i lie
in the dark,
turning, twisting,
and rotating this
recent piece
in both hands –
it’s no small thing

for as long as there

for as long as there
is electricity still
flowing between
us, we will stir
and break
one another’s
hearts
like moving
from one room
to the next

things that are

things that are
heartbreaking –
being there
and not
being there,
a ripple
torn at sea

i have special

i have special
powers that
have everything
and nothing
to do with how
you see me in the
dark
– a window,
a gate, an indecisive
waistline, a history
of heartbreak
