it’s a toss-up, who

it’s a toss-up, who
should have more

every third door is

every third door is
a mystery, just like knowing
what you are going

to say before you say it and
then, suddenly, not knowing

distance magnifies

distance magnifies
the need – i am saying it
without saying it,

the way that you have taught me
just as many years ago

this is a riding-

this is a riding-
through-the-woods
bike, built using the
motor-and-
snowmobile money,
replacing the swapped-
for-a-guitar, riding-
through-the-woods
bike
i imagine
you saying this

maybe it is as
you say –

because there
will be a numbness
that simply forgets

lonely sometimes,
or how i prefer
the loneliness
to making a run
for it – okay,
maybe only one
or two things

from sunrise to
sunset, we struggle
to say the things
we want to say,
chased down with
the words we
want to hear –
attention slacks
from so much
pressure

we practice not

we practice not
saying everything
by finding a common
denomination in
which to stuff
our values, multiply
the time spent
