summer’s recovery –

summer’s recovery –
excavating
crystallized time
for the brief
winter ahead,
powering up to
keep it all straight

by day’s end, we are

we will secretly

we will secretly
worry, lose
a night of sleep
here and there, hope
our bodies can
recover enough
every morning
so that we
may never be
this careless again

perhaps we hold each

perhaps we hold each
other impossibly, find
ourselves stretching to

make room, agreeing to take
on intricate recoveries

there’s a new haircut

there’s a new haircut
feeling about loss –
how, even after days or
weeks, you are learning
to re-recognize yourself
in the mirror, and stray
snippets keep loosening
and falling off
when you shower,
blow-dry, each a
memory
to be washed down
or somehow recovered

years later, we are

years later, we are
still trying to pull through –
one forgetfulness

at a time. there’s no such thing
as a full recovery

ever so often i

ever so often i
shake out the folds
of my happiness to
see if you are still
there. when
no stones are left
unturned in the
hopes for
recovery, a mess
is often left behind

most recoveries

most recoveries
are not immediately
detectable, like

day creeping into night – no
strain, only arms, letting go

days left to recover:

days left to recover:
still counting.
days left to be
recovered: five.
we have not
stopped looking

another nearly spent

another nearly spent
moon later, the city
appears
over the horizon
like a nestling frontier
ready to take wing
