there are parts that you

there are parts that you
will not recognize when you
are standing too close

and so, we stand back, every
now and then, refocus our gaze

in the morning, you

in the morning, you
started with, did you
hear…?
in the
afternoon, you
messaged me,
did you see…?
in the evening, you
turned to me, did
you read…?
yes,
i heard, i saw, i tried
not to read – daily,
pulling at and
readjusting this
knot in my stomach
so that i can still
stand straight, stop
bumping into this
monstrous
fight-or-flight
version of me

the line between standing

the line between standing
and falling curves
so naturally, there will
be minutes when you
can no longer tell
which way is
up, hours when it
feels so right,
and merely seconds
when it makes a
consequential difference

on hate

on hate
.
on an appearingly
random
day – as far
as the universe is
concerned – i will
walk
maybe even
run
out of here, Jeanne
and i will not
stop
until i feel
weightless

just watch for
it –
each morning when i
bend to
tighten these
laces, the odds are
starting to
tip
that i will
walk
away from you
as soon as i can
stand
