when you tamper with

i do not know when

i do not know when
these rose-colored
glasses fell
away from my
face – maybe it was
during some kind of
skirmish, maybe i
slipped them off
between gazing
over there
and looking right
here,
so that i could
see more clearly

it’s the belief that

it’s true, i never

it’s true, i never
wrote about you,
in neither of the
simple nor elaborate
accordion space of
twelve years, not a
word in even the
most imperceptible
folds, it would seem
i am now making
up for lost time, like
a gypsy creature
tuning her la vie
en rose
underground,
on the bleecker street
station platform,
skirt swaying

from one ecosystem

from one ecosystem
to another, i peer in
as you peer out, or is it
the other way around –
we are all considered
lost from at least
seventy-two
hundred perspectives –
from one way of
life to another

let’s break it to each

let’s break it to each
other slowly, iron out
each letter before
casting them into
words, meaning –
we might, just
might, catch ourselves
from spilling

the truth is always more

the truth is always more
nuanced, similar to how
light changes, shifts
in the course of
minutes, until what
you thought you saw
is no longer what
you are seeing, an
undulating unveiling
