the city learns to
layer in the same way clouds
bunch together, prays

for just enough rain to wash
away extraneous layers

we feel the approach

we feel the approach
of a deep freeze within our bones –
time to layer up

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: freeze

layer by layer,

layer by layer,
joy carries unique weight, secures
us for the long haul

so that we can become weight-
less
when conjuring up youth

of all the hours

of all the hours
visible to humans,
occasionally,
we will let slip
an extra hour,
unseen, yet felt
dancing within the
joyful layers
between
you and me

outside looking in,

we are always an

we are always an
illusion away from real
life – not knowing where

exactly the curtains can be
parted is another layer

with every decision comes a
shedding off of a

it is stated in countless

it is stated in countless
handbooks and hazard
identification trainings
that whenever a dust
layer of as little as one-
thirty-second of an
inch accumulates,
immediate cleaning is
warranted to prevent
combustion. i had often

pain would be
useful, drawing close
each layer like a
comforter, a coat,
an armor, a potential,
not knowing enough
about chemistry
and vents
and letting go

autumn arrives, clearly

autumn arrives, clearly
fallen – in
response, we layer
up
, tighten
the feelings that have
gotten loose,
our balancing act
with nature
