perhaps there is not

perhaps there is not
as much of a distinction
between people who

do it well and people who
do it just naturally

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: naturally

at the window, toy

at the window, toy
dinosaurs bath in the noon
light – an hour a

day keeps extinction events at
bay – my heart’s all set to evolve

sometimes the heart will

sometimes the heart will
autumn before it autumns, thoughts
whispering the end

of things as naturally as sweet
nothings – unpack your winter coat

between holding it all

between holding it all
in and not knowing
how you have held it
all in is the color
of regret, the
shape of
forgetfulness,
as natural
and unnatural
as time

we stretch to

we stretch to
normalize more
nimbly than we
care to admit –
staying alert
is a constant
mourning
for what came before

here and there, words hide

here and there, words hide
other words, tuck them away
between the folds of

there will be days when
we will need shelter
from each other

because we all live

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

no one has ever

no one has ever
had to say,
let’s practice
burying things
together
. it just
happens all too
naturally, fifteen
or so
feet under,
not quite out of
detection, but
deep enough
to call together
a group of engineers,
make redundant sweeps

after long exposures,

after long exposures,
the body naturally
establishes shortcuts,
fashions new
corridors to ease
the journey,
all the while, keeping
the same distance
