after a while, life

after a while, life
overlaps, retraces steps
even to move for-

ward, trips into dna
mutations, finds a way back

at any given

at any given
moment, i pick up a
memory at the
lost and found, turn
it over and over
to locate where i
may have hidden a
signature, measure
the half-life of the
grooves, in the Y,
the L, weigh its
tickle factor, look
for the nearest
trading post

grandma’s recipe,

i am lost and found

along Monterey

not knowing so much

not knowing so much
about love, i am often
at a disadvantage,
stepping out onto the
curb, discovering a
questionably
precious, undeniably
shiny thing, picking
it up, and thrusting it
into the hands of everyone
i meet – did you drop this?

perhaps words are our

perhaps words are our
very first
spices, nestled
on our tongues
like lost and
found
treasures, waiting
to stir
one another’s
pots of
thoughts and
lived experiences,
make little
explosions,
calm unnerved
nerves

i am merely a
bike ride away
from feeling
lost and found –
memories often
go ‘round and
‘round, stuck
hard greasing
the wheels

discoveries can
fold as much
as they can
unfold.
when we break
bread together
for the first
time, we won’t
know the difference,
and it’ll be as
much of a release

at the bookstore the

at the bookstore the
other day, i get down to
my knees and find myself
eye-level to a shelf
of books that scream
you. i pull off
a few volumes, open
to chance pages,
always looking for a
message, a sign to
your disappearance.
in one is a man
lighting up a
cigarette, in
another is someone
cursing, and in
a third, a
blank page, waiting
for the right
moment that will
no longer come
