when a flower bud
twists into place in the known
universe, a bulb

lights up a vacancy sign
in an unknown universe

when eating pizza,
we will experience gaps –
perhaps it will taste

regional, or maybe just one
town over, a known measurement

let us nurture the

let us nurture the
things we do not yet
know of each other –
memories saved in lost
pockets for rainy

from walking
away, walking
off, walking
to make sense
of it all, to
stop the rest
of the body
from feeling

under pressure, we’d
like to think that we can still
choose to be graceful

i am counting to ten, deep

a budding intrigue
