more often than not,

more often than not,
just around the corner is
something you want, but

still out of reach – maybe play
it safe, maybe take a risk

new year’s reflections

there are many hows

there are many hows
to securing the past and
sometimes present, not

so many clues to locking
on, safeguarding the future

we never ask to

we never ask to
be more than a
distraction,
though we forget
to buckle one
another in
for the ride

there is so much

there is so much
comfort in coming
home, a settling
in upon arrival,
tongues loosening,
mouths wet,
ready to once
again swallow
the world

so here is the pain

so here is the pain
they warned you about,
tucked between this
minute and the
next, i am awake,
and the light is
out for the
emergency exit

we are always and

between no standing

here is the fine line

here is the fine line
between love and
overkill. place it
between everything
and nothing that leads
to security vulnerability.
let that be our
safety valve

we make our way

we make our way
into the morning
in the manner of
stars filling in
the night sky –
in degrees,
subconsciously
evaluating the
distance between
one another for
structural integrity,
holding it in
holding it together
