across the border,

across the border,
at the edge of ohio,
for a solid hour,

i wait for sunrise, only
to be greeted by morning haze

at the window, toy
dinosaurs bath in the noon
light – an hour a

day keeps extinction events at
bay – my heart’s all set to evolve

of all the hours

of all the hours
visible to humans,
occasionally,
we will let slip
an extra hour,
unseen, yet felt
dancing within the
joyful layers
between
you and me

within every hour,

within every hour,
there are eleven minutes
that take flight, nearly

a fifth of a minute that
sits still, one-eighth in running shoes

minutes give way to

every third hour, there

every third hour, there
is a slow sliding into
contentment, or an

okayness with the world, being
alive is a navigation

spring arrives on tip-

spring arrives on tip-
toes, alighting an hour or
two into April.

be ready to negotiate,
have a music to barter

there is an old, new

there is an old, new
paralysis – a hitchhiker
on the most bearable
days, a parasite on
the worst – that pins
down a hand, an
arm, a leg, a morsel
of every hour, crushing
the cells and membranes
of day. we feel
sick about it all
the time, emerge
from the stupor
spasmodically to ask
one another for best and
worst case scenarios,
readjust our negativity
bias for a version
of survival

when we are

when we are
together, the minutes
are spun inside each
hour into cotton
candy, and the
day twirls, leaving
a sweet residue

we are an hour’s

we are an hour’s
ride away from the ocean.
there’s a gathering-

up-of-skirt feeling as i
write this, ready to take the plunge
