the body launches

the body launches
into tomorrow and never
for once looks back.
the mind fidgets with
purpose, extending long
fingers into those lost
hours, marking an X
with a thumbnail
on the moments
that still itch

sometimes the cause and

sometimes the cause and
the remedy are one and
the same – ginger for

hiccups, a fine rain for bad
luck, travel for loneliness

morning remedy
.
on my fifth bag of frozen
berries wrapped in a wet
towel, Vladimir started
on the Schumann Träumerei –
a tough rival to overtake
when it comes down to
the magic of lulling
one swollen eyelid
to go down quietly
while the other stands
mesmerized
like an older child
defeating curfew
for the very first time
.
