the radiator
is trying out a brand new
toccata in the

key of rise and shine this morning,
careful not to wake the neighbors

i must confess, two-thirds of these

i must confess, two-thirds of these
memories are used, three-quarters
spent, four-fifths
indistinguishable.
every key in my possession
is rusted,
long over-
exposed,
and it has nothing
to do with neglect

death is a double-

death is a double-
acting tumbler
lock, and i am brass
still feeling
for the shape
of an eighteenth

life is forging me

in the recurrent key of
loss, we pick up dumb
instruments, focus
all peripherals on the faint
rhythmic blur of one another’s
hearts

the tendency to
outrun today
in search of tomorrow starts
as a tremolo hidden
in the pit of anger

there are no notes
to rival the scale of
morphine it will take
to pinch off this sadness
