Tagged: space between

in the space between,

two bruises into

two bruises into
the morning, counting only
the corners that i

remember – some days just shrink
a little, wrinkling our spaces

i am on my way

we are all at once

we are all at once
secure and insecure
about the space
between us –
with no agreed upon
unit of measurement,
we have to
negotiate every
vibration, adapt
to each curve,
swallow words
in different
combinations and feel
the push and pull
of acceleration
with a new gravity

knowing it won’t last
