perhaps months,

perhaps months,
years from now, these
days will become
foggy, it’s how our
minds insist on
playing games with
our hearts – now you see
me, now you don’t

we have no choice as
witnesses, obligated
to make out every
fine detail in the
heightened haze

i know, and now you

i know, and now you
know, how this will go –
there will be
one week when i will
be indecisive about emptying
the wicker trash bin in the
bedroom, months when i
will avoid vacuuming
one or two corners of the
apartment for fear of
erasing you, a year or
five may go by before i
walk down that street
or head to the cloisters
again, and still, there
will be pockets within
minutes
, here and there,
when i will, without so
many words, bump into
the feeling the last time…
was with you
over and
over, until you become
like a fragrance from
lifetimes before

maybe for a couple

maybe for a couple
of months, it’ll hurt.
maybe for a couple
more, i’ll still
notice. after
that, the body
promises relief
and release – life
contemplates
death in bite-sized
servings, small
addicting
doses
to propel life
towards death

every one-sixty-

every one-sixty-
seventh of a second, our
neural detectors
miss a fraction
of a signal,
miscalculate
the weight of a
sensation, allowing
for a natural
and inescapable
buildup –
some days become
just noise, some
years, irretrievable

i come to bed on

i come to bed on
time, and you will hold me
until my body is
warm – that is the
deal for five out of
twelve months,
though i have the other
seven to get my
act together

indulgence is

indulgence is
slipping
into a spring
dress
that has been
waiting
patiently
to be aired out –
with just over
three weeks
left to go
