we are observing

we are observing
another anniversary
of your death, when
all of a sudden, years
are pressed more
tightly together, days
are returned with
renewed polish,
and our centers
are suspended, not quite
sure which way to topple

the minute is a
clot, not meant to
carry so
heavy a burden –
allow the seconds
to dissolve

your arrival is

on a Thursday, i dissected

on a Thursday, i dissected
your laughter, removed
the CO2 with coordination
polymers, cooled it into
liquid form, spun it
in a centrifuge,
removed the lightest
layer for crystallization
and filtration, melted the
residue, and brought it
back down to room
temperature. at its
purest, your liquid
laughter suspends
the heaviest of losses

it’s always a Chinese finger trap too
late when the music starts to
undress at the first arpeggiated

fumbling
with the suspensions
and releases
when you peel
back the
final layers
and realize
that it’s just
the beginnings of
a getting to know
him getting to know
her mixed tape
