all of it begins

all of it begins
to fade even as we are
capturing it – pen

to paper, experience
to memory – don’t hold on

there is a stinging

there is a stinging
ceaselessness to unloving
we try out the same

words elsewhere, hold tight to other
words for just a while longer

seconds before flight,

this is just to say,

this is just to say,
if we want to, we can time
it right each day, so

that when we reach the river,
we can let go of it all

there is an ease to

let us not forget

let us not forget
this feeling, even when we
have not quite
identified it – a gelatinous
persuasion of guilt
if you do and
guilt if you don’t –
stuck treading
words that have been
said, flutter kicking
into words that have
been left unsaid

hours before flight,

hours before flight,
small regrets couched in relief –
saying no to cheese-

cake, you, and holding onto
a semblance of the unknown
