acknowledgements is truly
recognizing that

they’re everywhere – scenes of the

we, too, fall slowly

we, too, fall slowly
into disrepair, as often
as we renovate,

replace parts, look into the
mirror to find our old selves

one day to repair
ties with the American
worker, three-hundred

wages, worsen working
conditions, weaken
bargaining power
here’s to summer’s
end and ushering
the kids back to school,
biding time for
a difference

life cracks, is
meant to raise
hairline fractures
to disguise the mad
scribblings of being

some days, god –

some days, god –
with his night cap
still on – wakes
before the mrs.
to get an early
start on the
darning. holes
never repair
themselves,
and the earlier
stitches were
just evolution
playing
tricks again

my father’s hands

and the lifetime

machine parts.
as good as
new
is just a
phrase rattling,
clanking, echoed
in other households.
in ours, silence
speaks steadfast

what keeps us
together follows the
procedure for
assembling most
dependable, long-
lasting
things –
tighten loosely,
and it won’t break
