after being away for so

after being away for so
long, a new album
arrives
from the artist
formerly known as
new love or our
infatuation.
i don’t wonder
if you’re listening
to it, nor which track
has had the most plays.
something so meant
to be shared
shouldn’t be listened
to alone

in the pentatonic

in the pentatonic
drip
of Colin
McPhee, the
radiator dared
to tune his flute,
nearly catching
up beneath the
layers of
ostinati, with
a strained
persistence
between a handful
of parallel fifths
and finally
hitting the
downbeat just
shy of the gong

ashtray-blackandwhitebreast-

ashtray-blackandwhitebreast-
cigarettegirlgreen
is the title
of an album lost somewhere
along Interstate 40
when we were running
away from the rest of our
lives. you pulled it from
the trunk of that old Rabbit
which we knew would never
make it any further than
Nashville, but surprised
us instead, rolling into
Albuquerque. i can’t really
say if we escaped in the
end, but being here with
you, with those confident
chords
kicking in, traps
me all over again

in every transaction, there

in every transaction, there
is a Frank and Claire
the business of
discomfort promises
never a dull
moment, or is it
the other way
around – it takes very
little, much less, to feel
like you belong
