a constellation of

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: movement

every twenty-first

every twenty-first
wintry afternoon, allow us
to storm a lemon

poppy seed castle, fingers
glazed, mouths sweet and victorious

in the beginning was

in the beginning was
the word, and the word
was stella, rapping so
gently at my
window with her icy
knuckles this morning –
despite forecasts
and city shutdowns
and a state of emergency
declaration and thousands
of plows deployed
across the boroughs,
and lining up outside
grocery stores under
a cool blue sky –
despite everything, still
leaning on her southern
charm, like a new art form

for all the data

for all the data
we collect from one
another, day to
day, minute
to minute, perhaps
we are building
a universal
reference on
ourselves, as if
there could be
a perfect equation
to calculate the
gravitational tug
from person to
person, something
we can keep
in our back pocket
