picture perfect is

picture perfect is
a lens through which we develop
surface impressions

it takes lifting the roof, tearing
down walls to gain something deeper

on the surface, weight

on the surface, weight
is one calculation away
from accuracy –

the size and shape of a thing
does not easily divulge depth

at any given

at any given
moment, memories become
carbonated, rise,

rising, risen, until they
reach the surface of consent

snow builds power in

snow builds power in
every crevice, on every
surface, we can sit

back and watch the contortions and
wonder how it does it so cold

on the face of it,

on the face of it,
we are freckled and dimpled,
aging towards a

perfect imperfection – dig
deeper, and we fall apart

nearly three decades
later, we are still finding
hidden things within

your depths, stirring the surface
for clues in each fleeting fold

the tongue you do not
choose to use loses
elasticity, fumbles
its phonetic alphabet,
but remains resilient,
bobbing across
brainwaves,
suspending
memories as bait

there is nothing that

there is nothing that
wraps you closer to
home than the faint
recognition of old
wallpaper, on the
surface so solid
and cold, under-
neath, a soft
familiar defense

on any given

on any given
day, there is
untapped
energy just
beneath
the surface

frayed
edges from
yesterday’s
exchange, creep
corrosion on
the spine, and
extreme
pressures
and temperature
fluctuations
on the soul.

as of this writing,
a team of world-renowned
electrochemical engineers
have checked into their
hotel. two by two, they
will learn to work things
out and present their
findings on societal
needs in support of a
sustainable future
