it has come to my

it has come to my
attention that
you sing when
moving from room to
room in the middle of
a quiet afternoon because
i scare easily. love is
adding to our repertoire
so that we can
become more
secondhand
fearless together

most of the time,

most of the time,
we misjudge
distances.
this morning,
the mind crossed
seventy-two days
in the same number of
steps it took for you
to cross the room,
re-negotiate
the intrigue

i started the morning off

i started the morning off
with chocolate. no one
has to know unless i
somehow give it away,
warn you, for example,
that the irresistibly smooth,
buttery caramel center
was a lie, or that always
eat your chocolate
at room temperature,
especially truffles
,
does not cover all rooms
since you’ve went away.
at any rate, there is one
less person to count the
remaining pieces,
no one has to know

on the seventh

on the seventh
anniversary of your
death, i announce
it the way one
notes it’s saturday,
close my heart
off for the rest
of the day, tune
in to everything
so there is no room
for the hunter

you buried kisses

you buried kisses
underneath the
floorboards while
i watched –

here, it will burn

here, it will
go so slowly

and here,
definitely
one here

i pass from
room to room,
aching to be
kissed, unkissed

day one or day

day one or day
twenty-four, i realize
i think of you
so that there’s less
room for the
rest of it. we all do
it, think of one
another so that we
can manage how much
to withstand, surrender,
resist, confront.
this morning,
i couldn’t get out
of bed, then i
thought of you

here comes the truth, we

here comes the truth, we
have little to no room for
one another on

our life’s carriages – scoot over,
for some people, you make room
