in the dream after

in the dream after
the dream that is just before
waking, we will meet

as if we knew each other in
past and future lives, not this one

around the world in

around the world in
thirty-eight time zones, we string
our multiple new

years to dangle around our
wrists, a celebration, chain-linked

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

on the lunar

(for grandpa)

on the lunar
calendar, we
are celebrating
our birthdays
today, just one
world away
from each
other,
which feels
like multitudes,
on and off
the system
for counting
so many days
apart

to tell the truth, as soon

to tell the truth, as soon
as i have settled into
the wait at the gate,
boarding pass in hand,
homeward bound,
i am split into two –
one in anticipation,
with joy, the other,
already in the future,
sitting at another
gate, heart
untangling the
strings that keep
pulling me
home, taut with
renewed longing –
waiting to be whole

every morning, we

every morning, we
stumble upon new
universes, simply
in the way we rub
off on one another

as portals through time

in every moment,

in every moment,
we are splintering and re-
rendering, rocking

the boat of time, taking care
not to catch too much water

there is a version

there is a version
of me who stays, i know it
by the way you speak

to me, in our secret language,
as if i had never left

every one-sixteenth

every one-sixteenth
of a second, we peel off
an identity –

we could compare notes, but we
would already be lying

4:18 A.M.,

4:18 A.M.,
the train rumbles through, a lengthy
visitor, running

along the parallel tracks
of dreaming and awakening
