the trick is to not

the trick is to not
react any differently,
to try to resist

that lizard brain, no offense
to lizards, try not to jump

the middle of

the middle of
september pauses
for no one – it’s
unclear who is
chasing who
as the sun tucks
in earlier and
earlier every night

observing the
caesura that suddenly
appeared in our hearts

the third of
September arrives
on the back
of a new

pausing

between
thickets to taste
mint rain
on grass
