let’s collect enough

let’s collect enough
golden hours in a lifetime
to string a necklace

longer than the horizon,
more weightless than our eyes can see

let’s let every once

a day to rest and

a day to rest and
unclog the sink, empty the
vacuum bin, clean out

the freezer, make pizza, let
the dough rest longer, yes, longer

departures come and

t-minus one month

t-minus one month
before homecoming – suitcases
out and ready, chores

crossed off, two by two, days become
longer, stretched across memories

chasing the sun west-

because we can stave

because we can stave
off hunger for much longer,
treasure these moments

when we are together, stow
them away for a rainy day

how much longer? we

sickness and in health, inside
and outside, peering beyond

some things take longer –
growing up, staying
strong, hanging on
