we come across days

we come across days
when even the seconds are
resistant – there is

only so much we can do
to unfurl, get out of bed

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: unfurl

there will be milli-

there will be milli-
seconds when all you can do
is resist – between

signals, synapses, and spring,
everything is a trigger

on day 104

on day 104
or 105, in between
counting and waiting,

there will be seconds when i
will forget that i am waiting

seconds beget days,

seconds before flight,

when we are

when we are
together, the minutes
are spun inside each
hour into cotton
candy, and the
day twirls, leaving
a sweet residue

minutes before

minutes before
departure inescapably
turn into seconds –
before you
know it, you’re
on the other side

perhaps time stretches

perhaps time stretches
during separation, seconds
become minutes,
minutes, hours,
and so on and so forth,
so that upon
return, it is
best to use caution
when opening
overhead bins, as
items may have
shifted in flight

some nights will hurt more

some nights will hurt more
than others – minutes will seem
miles apart, and the

second hand will catch your eye
in the dark, forget to tick

at the intersection

at the intersection
to evening, we charter
every minute to take
us home, cut through
the seconds for
a fresh rinse
