allow us to go

allow us to go
first for a
change

first to call
it for what it is,
–isms, -ists, -phobias
and listen.
because unfailingly,
we are the firsts
to call it
for what it isn’t,
to call each other
out, the go-to tool
for those accustomed
to the short straw

universe works, i am stuck
wondering if somewhere,
in the constellation
hydra

looked out her window
for the last time, a witness
to the collision, ouroboros

be a proper human, i make
little notes on how

to conduct myself, scratch out
wins, circle losses with a

bruised marker, i catch

to build a luminous
fort with hand-picked
catchphrases. i am
still trying to string a
word or two across my
ukulele to strike
a suitable tension

i know without you

i know without you
having to say as much that
there is nothing here

for me – the timing of kisses
and the purposes they serve
