we will always stop

we will always stop
what we’re doing for the drum
solo – for rhyme or

rhythm, we lean in closer,
beating our own melodic tale

you are meditating

you are meditating
while i peel into fifteen
pomegranates, looking
for a pattern, a rhythm,
a mantra to latch
onto that could
somehow make the
detachment effortless

the stories that are

the stories that are
not getting told toil
ninety hours a week,
a silent rhythm

on the nth day of

on the nth day of
summer, we made a few
more discoveries,
hand in hand, arms
swinging towards
home, luck in our
steps. a new
Hedera helix hanging
planter finds its rhythm
alongside us, ready
to climb towards
the stars at our window

the heart, troubled, can
fool itself and companion
organs to help speed
its demise. it’s a lose-
lose situation, stretching to

of cicada songs,

a ripple in the reflection,
an asynchronization

periodically,

periodically,
the heart gets loosened, rattles
in the middle of

the night, to a mysterious
rhythm, waking everything

between sunset and dusk,

between sunset and dusk,
i carry our memories
into the woods and

can
share
everything
this equally
anchor roots,
annual scars, our
most vulnerable
therefore responsive
layers, and each new
branch, learning to tap
our rhythm across the sky

beyond kisses, if

beyond kisses, if
i were to shimmy out of
the last layer of

delicacy between us,
we would soon find our rhythm
