years later,

years later,
the fossil of
our meeting will cast
an impression formed
by the electricity
moving
from room to
room, when
we first became
aware
of one another’s
presence

perhaps the option

to manage and hold

to manage and hold
simplicity, the universe
maps out new
configurations of
gears that must
turn with elegant
precision.
whether taking on
the city, the woods, or
each other, we do
the same thing –
listen intently
for only one
another’s clicks

in stillness,

in stillness,
we become
landscape,
recognizing
our twists and
turns for the
journey ahead

after some use, hearts

after some use, hearts
lose that pealing
sound, the one
that brings islands
closer, as if you
were folding up
a map, finally
confident in your
way. after some
use, the thumping
wears away the
lining, hollows out
a dull ache, abandons
red Xs across small
towns, major cities –
treasure exhausted,
no need to return

for every longitude

for every longitude
crossed
for the very
first time, the brain
pushes through a
limit of compilation,
draws a new doodle
to symbolize this
street, this corner,
this hand-holding.
for every latitude,
we break down in
laughter, spin
the compass

i have broken

i have broken
myself down to
simple mathematics,
the sides and moments
are numbered
, moods
worn, meanings
clustered into
formulaic outcomes.
even so, there are
familiar pieces still
tricky to define –
take, for example,
this kaleidoscopic
loneliness

sometimes, each

an untouched

you have redrawn

you have redrawn
the map to your
heart. overnight,
two roads were under
new construction,
a third walled
off, a cul-de-sac
has become a
sinkhole, and the
driveway is now
an occasion for
long departures
