you don’t need to scan

you don’t need to scan
my heart, line by
line, chew on
each
page, leave
notes in the
margins
to notice
that it’s still
a choose-your-own-
adventure story,
with some endings
more inevitable

theater-hopping in

theater-hopping in
the multiplex was a game
we used to play on
hot summer days,
one disposable
blockbuster at a time.
nothing beats learning
how to build consensus
in the cool comfort
between fantasy
and mystery

eventually,

eventually,
stories that do not
get told
no longer struggle
for the light,
but rather
submit to
a silence
more rusted than
golden. the
distinction appears
negligible, but here,
try to lift this weight

sometimes, a story

sometimes, a story
exceeds memory –
crucial details are
sidelined, the plot
misplaced, there
becomes no room
for anyone
to feel anything

electricity on

electricity on
the whole is
simple. but when
embedded into
how we touch
each other,
it travels like
tradition,
unwritten,
unmeasured,
complicated –
and when passed
just right, we
are physically
charged

they make it look

they make it look
so easy in stories –
the scattering of
ashes over land or
sea, always a
memorable scene.
no one mentions
that there are still
bones to pick
long after hearts
have cooled off
