you and i are parked

you and i are parked
on the corner of finished
and done, resorting

to old friendship fumes to wrap up
our departures extra neatly

at the end of it

at the end of it
all, warning or no
warning,

separation. until
then, we worry
about everything
in nothing

acknowledging that
it matters is the first step

ahead, down the road from us

perhaps time stretches
during separation, seconds
become minutes,
minutes, hours,
and so on and so forth,

return, it is
best to use caution
when opening
overhead bins, as
items may have

you came back to the

you came back to the
city from a week at the
lakes smelling
different, new. at first
we thought it was
nature, the woods,
fresh air, and then
maybe the hotel soap.

identified it as
sunscreen and,

our bathroom
mirror with all
of your familiar things

with you, i get

the best of one another
as if it were the

end of summer already –
eyes and pools sparkling

steeling of nerves at

the point of departure – it looks
like you and me leaning away

when we finally

when we finally
fragment, the spirit
will lift
lightly, stretch
and curl new
muscles created
only for this springing
away
, a small
push
into the unknown
