we let the neighbor’s

we let the neighbor’s
kids come over to make a
mess of our living
room – tiny fingers
breaking up packing
peanuts with so much
glee, spreading even
smaller pieces across
the floor, then
commanding the
Roomba to do what
it does best –
entertain small
terrestrial creatures

assimilating
and not assimilating play
tug of war in the

morning, at meal times, just before
bed, looking for a clean win

batman, preferring to be
someone much less
interesting,
like superman,
seeing
and hearing
everything, with
the ability
to fly away

please play some music

relief trades playing

relief trades playing
cards with pain, sometimes also
with fear, there are no

winners, nor losers in the
end, only ephemeral fools

perhaps months,

perhaps months,
years from now, these
days will become
foggy, it’s how our
minds insist on
playing games with
our hearts – now you see
me, now you don’t

we have no choice as
witnesses, obligated
to make out every
fine detail in the
heightened haze

there are at least four

there are at least four
hundred and twenty-
eight songs i no longer
play, not counting the
accidental shuffles, one-
point-one days of ditties
i will not d.j. for
guests nor the company
of one. between past and
present, there is a
gap, where last played
rehearses silently, confined
to a losing history
