take on a lover

an arm around a

an arm around a
lover’s waist can read
many things –
a stanza steeped
in equal parts
love and
loneliness,
an absent
horizon waiting
to be sparked,
a compendium of
partialities
wrapped
in our history,
a ship of words
drifting between
fiction and truth

the first winter to

the first winter to
start without you
hangs around at the
bottom of the
stoop
, loiters
like a lost
lover, lingers like
the last note of
a new kind of
music, sticks
around like the
final clump of
snow, trails like
a loss for words

when i start using

when i start using
coincidence as bait,
the universe will soon
dangle off my fish
hook like a long lost
lover, looking for
the quickest way
home.

watch out for
me when i start
digging for
coincidences
like that –
be on to me
