every tragedy

every tragedy
forces us into tunnel
vision – it takes a

community to draw us
back out, save us from ourselves

on the tip of your

on the tip of your
tongue are words you save up to
say, like a demure

posy, a surprise learning
to become so familiar

here is a thing i

here is a thing i
do or am finding myself
newly doing, an
adding-on to my
life experiences
because of you –
after certain
deaths, a scouring
through the cloud,
gathering of data,
zeroes and ones,
for evidence, any
sign of neglect
when i could have
singlehandedly, if
not so effortlessly,
plucked this
future pain from
our hearts, an
unbelievably self-
preserving, ego-
centric, and
indulgent thought,
as if i could
wrap it securely
around my heart
to forget you

on the scale of zero

on the scale of zero
to infinity, we are all in
variant degrees
drowning. what
distinguishes us
is the scale to
which you or i
can actually
save one another
from each other
