i negotiate

i negotiate
spaces as if i were free
or a hostage – the

switch is only available
when i am sufficiently numb

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: negotiate

when how we listen

temptation is a

temptation is a
state of mind – we toggle the
on and off switch to

suit our purposes, step in
and out of our comfort zone

we fake it even

we fake it even
when we are trying
not to – it takes
just about
anything to flip
the switch, it is
why we say the
things we said
we wouldn’t

to turn off. here is the switch

the thing that can turn you

the thing that can turn you
into a vegetarian doesn’t look
like much – it is a switch
like any other switch, a
button, a memory, an
unannounced instance.
whatever the circumstance,
the best advice in town is
never give it a name

it’s not quite a game

it’s not quite a game
yet, this switching on-
and-off thing we
do, imagining ourselves
as masters of heart-
tugging improvisation.

some sort of primordial
soup, a little demure,
a little boneless

we made the switch

we made the switch
just past the
treehouse, and
no one said a word.

and-go timing of
these early
courtships was
concerned, it was
often as complicated
as executing a
well-envisioned
stunt – even
in retrospect,
there were so
many arguments
for success
