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

patterns are bound to
accompany us across the

because we live

because we live
and we die,
we will forget
to be kind, make
sure to pass
down only the
compassionate
genes, inspire
empathy, break
patterns

on uneven ground,

on uneven ground,
we have pretended
long enough
for self-esteem to
fray, patterns
to solidify,
thoughts
to slant
with no foothold

in that lumberyard

in that lumberyard
of dreams, we still graze each other
imperfectly, knots

and all, finding familiar
patterns in the grain, such weakness

the trick to getting

the trick to getting
out of a sticky situation
is to fall apart
completely, deconstruct
so that you are no
longer a whole
onto yourself,
but a grain
of cosmic
dust, puzzle-
shaped and counting
on repeating patterns
to complete the picture

the patterns you

the patterns you
observe in time
are meant
to cushion every
anomaly, the way
packaging foam
hugs the curves
of each fruit
to hold the juices
in, keep from
bruising.
so don’t
be restless, my
dear, don’t
insist that you are
bored. sink into
the patterns
of our lives,
soak it in between
the days, the years
