here we are, picking

here we are, picking
out blues
based on what
we’ve perceived
as blues from past
lives. no wonder
we cannot
come to a

in a parallel

in a parallel
universe, it is still the
weekend, and because
we live comfortably
and are doing something
as normal as holding
a garage sale,
we are worried
about the color
of our skin
over the
commonality
of sharing
perceived treasures

at the beginning

at the beginning
of things, we measure
color, intensity,
a fundamental
frequency.
at the end
of things, we measure
the weight,
the time,
the ratio between
reality and
perception

place, time, mindset –

place, time, mindset –
how we can jostle
for room to catch
a glimpse of the
night sky
from a window
of an asylum –

the wallpaper in our
bathroom has begun to
curl. it will take more
than several
grains of Mama’s sweet
rice to keep up
appearances.
an old house relives
old memories, clings
to the soles of your
shoes when you cross
the threshold, walk through
that event boundary

there are inconstant

there are inconstant
layers
to leaving –
there is
the moment of
departure, then
the sudden
bittersweet
minute a week
later, the same
stuck second
after one
year – none
of it, a reflection,
all of it, a generous
helping, an
inexact savoring
