in the morning, you

in the morning, you
started with, did you
hear…?
in the
afternoon, you
messaged me,
did you see…?
in the evening, you
turned to me, did
you read…?
yes,
i heard, i saw, i tried
not to read – daily,
pulling at and
readjusting this
knot in my stomach
so that i can still
stand straight, stop
bumping into this
monstrous
fight-or-flight
version of me

when the heart breaks,

when the heart breaks,
the body, unbeknownst
to the host,
disconnects, one, two,
maybe several
organs at a time. it
is how on day seven,
the outer shell awakes
first and recognizes
pain along the circuitry,
the stomach reacts,
two-thirds liver-less,
the spinal cord lets
go a bouquet of
nerves, and the
tongue is speechless,
numb to the touch

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

reality is

reality is
interaction
if not for
you, would i
have made
this quantum
leap, from orbit
to orbit, something
so fundamental,
and still,
a mystery
