in the absence of

in the absence of
eyelids, it is possible
that fish still
dream
– their
brains sleeping in
shifts, shuttling
the fabric of
storied images
back and forth,
back and forth

every other july
fourth, a streak of blue
angels across more
blue, and somehow,
our thoughts choose
to stay here,
together, mid-
winter, aboard the
fastest shuttle,
merely gray
matter

especially in
stillness, there are
exchanges of
information,
messages to be
delivered –
yes,
no,
you are still
the texture of
happiness

each package
arrives and
departs like
a shuttle
anticipating
smooth sailing

some afternoons are
arranged in such a way as
to fuel twin rockets
but the physics

it is so seventeenth

it is so seventeenth
century the way we still
shuttle memories back
and forth by hand so that
we have reason
to touch.

i let you hold
down the strongest
memories, stretched
tautly by time, while
i maintain the fill, following
each spun horizon.

the longer we do this,
the richer our threads.
the longer we do this,
the finer our patterns
the longer we do this,
the more alive our beloved
