i negotiate
spaces as if i were free
or a hostage – the

switch is only available
when i am sufficiently numb

most of the time,

most of the time,
we misjudge
distances.
this morning,
the mind crossed
seventy-two days
in the same number of
steps it took for you
to cross the room,
re-negotiate
the intrigue

not even a quarter

not even a quarter
of the way through
this regimen of anti-
this and anti-that,
the body finds
a way to want
more, the brain
negotiates terms of
acceptance – it’s
a lose-lose
situation, adapting
to desire

we are all at once

we are all at once
secure and insecure
about the space
between us –
with no agreed upon
unit of measurement,
we have to
negotiate every
vibration, adapt
to each curve,
swallow words
in different
combinations and feel
the push and pull
of acceleration
with a new gravity

we mark each day in

we mark each day in
multi-tense, mind and body
carrying the weight of
a second ago, a
minute, a day, some
decades, all the
while negotiating
the present, the future
for more, even more
