i want to hold you

i want to hold you
for much longer
next time, let
our skins shuttle
molecular
notes as we dream.
because nothing is
forever, the default
is to embed ourselves
even deeper, so
that letting go
appears easy,
can’t possibly
hurt

a round of mantras

a round of mantras
away from becoming graceful,
i sabotage my

chances expertly, with years
of coveting self-denial

here is a reminder

here is a reminder
in the middle of
a wintry afternoon
that i do not deserve
you – my legs
wrapped up so
carefully in
your legs, and for
a small, exposed
piece of me that still
strays with the
inescapable
draft in the room,
a warm hand lands,
perches, massages
periodically into
that tickle threshold,
in case i were not
already completely
yours, present

day one or day

day one or day
twenty-four, i realize
i think of you
so that there’s less
room for the
rest of it. we all do
it, think of one
another so that we
can manage how much
to withstand, surrender,
resist, confront.
this morning,
i couldn’t get out
of bed, then i
thought of you

what you are supposed

what you are supposed
to do, she said, is
move on.
that is exactly
what these moments are
for – to remember
that you are
alive every so
often so that you can
go back to the
business
of living again

do not be alarmed – i

do not be alarmed – i
found a bruise on my
upper right
thigh the size of
carelessness, the
shade of meditative
healing, the length
of missing you.
between the corner
of the table and
rounding week
two, it’s only a
matter of time

perhaps my body

perhaps my body
is more tired than i let
on – it takes some kind
of energy to separate
old from new, constancy
from probability
