the places we can’t

in the early days of

in the early days of
discovering
teleportation, people flocked
in and out of
cities, towns, endangered
ecosystems, any
place they could
imagine.
not even six months
in, people began
to make up new and old
excuses for why they
couldn’t drop in on
loved ones, spend any
more time than before
teleportation – tractor-beam
malfunction, severed spatial
eliminator widgets, quantum
dissociation syndrome,
the cost, work, dog duties.
the excuses couldn’t
have imagined better
champions, we can
stop imagining teleportation

in the history
of responding to
acts of division,
the go-to responses
were to draw the
curtains or take to
the streets. perhaps
there is a
kaleidoscope of
choices, waiting
for us to rotate,
reflect, come
together, and
conjure them
into place

we can’t imagine

we can’t imagine
going back – as the color
starts to fade
on those

particular memories, we
realize we’ve been lost all this time

our childhood backyards

our childhood backyards
present a kaleidoscope of
possibilities –

we are as lucky as we

we are as lucky

this is a riding-

this is a riding-
through-the-woods
bike, built using the
motor-and-
snowmobile money,
replacing the swapped-
for-a-guitar, riding-
through-the-woods
bike
i imagine
you saying this
all in one-and-a-
half breaths, or
finishing a little
out of breath. but
instead, you say
no other bike is the
same – it’s mint
