the structures in which

the structures in which
we play, stretch and bend time, mold
memories, will give

us away – if not by their
longevity, then their decay

out of courtesy,

out of courtesy,
we are one another’s textbook
spiral galaxies,

lit with intrinsic structure,
not wholly predictable

nine out of ten words
prefer following over
leading –
the weight hangs
upon the hook

keeping some things just
slightly out of focus

the times we’ve looked
away, changed the

somewhere between

somewhere between
the picture listing in
The Real Estate Book
and the second
mortgage, they
have built a home,
welcomed his first
cousin, twice
removed, survived
an affair, and given up
on the swollen door
that scrapes the

the house’s image,
to uphold those
first impressions
, that
white picket fence,
from the
honeymoon viewing

between each
knotted happening,
adding to the
golden length
of an afternoon
well-cared for,
secured
by a multi-
color sunset
at the clasp

to live in, structures
to last, and age
is a moving
target, engineered
to see us through

confidence by
what is built
underneath and
in between. the
harder we laugh,
the more certain
we are that
something
is changing
