it is easier

it is easier
to lose our way
than find a
way back – this,
we all want to
believe, as we stretch
into a new shape
and try not to
boomerang

in the tapestry

in the tapestry
of spring, we are new weavers,
tempted to tuck and

pull on loose strands, hesitant
until we find our pattern

you are meditating

you are meditating
while i peel into fifteen
pomegranates, looking
for a pattern, a rhythm,
a mantra to latch
onto that could
somehow make the
detachment effortless

there is comfort in

there is comfort in
being able to identify
a pattern – in life

or death, we have a better
chance of going down swinging

the days do not add

the days do not add
up neatly, do not form an
intelligible

pattern that could help direct
the lost, the living, the lucky

we flock into

february like
birds,
clinging
to a lost pattern

we keep doing this,

we keep doing this,
passing the baton,
season after season,
trying our hardest
not to trip

here is the offhand

here is the offhand
remark that
connects all the
other remarks –
the brain fashions
a net, tight
enough to make
categorical sense of
the situation,
loose enough to let
things go or
accidentally strangle

on closer inspection,

on closer inspection,
we all reach out
similarly,
with something to
give, something to
take, and always,
with something lonely
for something that
will make us
even lonelier

there are levels

there are levels
to these patterns
the human brain
sears onto a go-to
memory card
the image of
young urban
thing standing
in front of
establishment
with
the word trouble
i am asking you to
flip through several
cards down for
the one that is
grayer, with patterns
more painful
to access,
those invisible
interlocking systems
