on the way to, we

on the way to, we
are carried
by the joy of
anticipation. on the
way back,
we are lifted
by the counterweight
of fulfillment

to feel like lead

to feel like lead
is to recognize one’s
own poisoning,
the patterns
employed by
stealth chemical
agents. you don’t
have to know
yourself very
well to confess
that your body
craves, yet
longing
and satisfaction
are two sides of
the same coin

because we did not

because we did not
see the broad-winged
hawk this morning
covering the
backyard, you pulled
out a favorite
from your magical
repertoire, waved
the eighth wand Dad
bought to replace the
others – you swear
it’s lighter on the
wrist – and for
the umpteenth
time, plated
a dish to right
all wrongs
