between this side of
the road and that side of the
road is some sort of

redemption – it takes a crossing,
two pints of restoring words

it turns out that we

it turns out that we
all do it – the people with
whom we choose to have
a beer or four, well
into the night, post-
inauguration, whether
commiserating or
celebrating, are
stunningly

with you and without you are
two timelines with the

perhaps words are our
very first
spices, nestled
on our tongues

we live comfortably
and are doing something
as normal as holding
a garage sale,
we are worried
about the color

the push and pull
of acceleration
with a new gravity
