without meaning to,

without meaning to,
we collect one another’s
words with devotion,

inject intent helplessly,
and still love inescapably

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

minutes before

minutes before
departure inescapably
turn into seconds –
before you
know it, you’re
on the other side

every one-sixty-

every one-sixty-
seventh of a second, our
neural detectors
miss a fraction
of a signal,
miscalculate
the weight of a
sensation, allowing
for a natural
and inescapable
buildup –
some days become
just noise, some
years, irretrievable

every morning, the

every morning, the
heart’s seismograph
is pulled out, checked,
polished, and reset to
register inescapable
vibrations. on the
other hand – when
packed
, one always
knows when to leave
