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

it turns out that we

it turns out that we
all do it – the people with
whom we choose to have
a beer or four, well
into the night, post-
inauguration, whether
commiserating or
celebrating, are
stunningly
like us, in the ways
that make us all
weaker,
as we prop
each other up

day one or day

day one or day
twenty-four, i realize
i think of you
so that there’s less
room for the
rest of it. we all do
it, think of one
another so that we
can manage how much
to withstand, surrender,
resist, confront.
this morning,
i couldn’t get out
of bed, then i
thought of you

some day, the actions

some day, the actions
we take and the actions we
do not take will be
finely detailed in reams
of schematics, outlining
the exact series of
electrical pulses that
take us from point A
to point B. when we are
in danger of breaking,
you or i will pull down
the heaviest volumes,
pinky-swear until the
cows come home that
we will get to the bottom
of this, not allow
each other to experience
so much vulnerability

i am doing the

i am doing the
thing i do best, please don’t
discourage. in the light of
day, self-preservation
absentmindedly pulls
on the drawstrings
to tighten the hood
of detachment
so that looking out
beats looking in

in between the sips

in between the sips
we take of one another,
let us bump into

unidentifiable
things, savor uncertainty

perhaps words are our

perhaps words are our
very first
spices, nestled
on our tongues
like lost and
found
treasures, waiting
to stir
one another’s
pots of
thoughts and
lived experiences,
make little
explosions,
calm unnerved
nerves
