attention to the

way you ordered what you ordered
because everything was brand new

every morning, new
worlds appear unbidden, having
nothing and every-

thing to do with the way we
see each other, interact

kyle from utah is
reminiscing about the
yards of grass and miles

of trees wherever he went in
atlanta – only in new york

let us nurture the

let us nurture the
things we do not yet
know of each other –
memories saved in lost
pockets for rainy
days, chapters
that turn up on every
other corner
in the east village,
the strangeness
that only gets

waiting – allow
us to earn
more questions

nearer the end, the sun
is no longer
a stranger, waiting
for an invitation
to make himself
at home, get
comfortable.
this is the part where he
spreads himself
liberally, enters
every nook and
cranny, forgets
his manners.
this is the part
where we document
the overfamiliarity,
take pictures

almost ten

almost ten
years later, and you
are still a mystery
same shirt, same
apron, perhaps
a heavier prescription
