the city can no

the city can no
longer recognize its own
reflection on the

water – night and day, it searches
for the city it used to be

wisdom is knowing
just enough to recognize
surely when to stop

in the fabric of
each moment, there are stitches
of joy, of sadness –

not recognizing which is which

we all do it now

we all do it now
and then
and eventually,
gnarl between and
beyond
varying states of
recognition, twist
like willow
or bonsai, contort
like oak. i am
looking at you
and discovering
someone
else. you are not
looking at me
and seeing
with clarity

recognizing only a splinter

recognizing only a splinter
of a fragment of how
the observable
universe works, i am stuck
wondering if somewhere,
in the constellation
hydra
, someone has
looked out her window
for the last time, a witness
to the collision, ouroboros

there are parts that you

there are parts that you
will not recognize when you
are standing too close

and so, we stand back, every
now and then, refocus our gaze

i would like to break

i would like to break
down into smaller, even
smaller parts, parts no

longer distinguishable,
stop recognizing me, please

there is a beginning,

there is a beginning,
a middle, and an
end to novelty –
perhaps it
takes looking
just beyond
to recognize
the pieces that
stay, the moments
that reverberate
