here is a thing i

here is a thing i
do or am finding myself
newly doing, an
adding-on to my
life experiences
because of you –
after certain
deaths, a scouring
through the cloud,
gathering of data,
zeroes and ones,
for evidence, any
sign of neglect
when i could have
singlehandedly, if
not so effortlessly,
plucked this
future pain from
our hearts, an
unbelievably self-
preserving, ego-
centric, and
indulgent thought,
as if i could
wrap it securely
around my heart
to forget you

life rarely

life rarely
pierces
the same
place twice –
don’t be
daft, remove
the cape, it
doesn’t take
a hero
to
get it right

part of a masked hero’s

part of a masked hero’s
job always remains
hidden and unthought-
of
– the part where he
is setting the alarm
before bed, she is
putting on
SPF 30 to walk
the dog, he is ironing
his insignia, and –
just between you
and me – they are
comic strip happy
