nine times out of

nine times out of
ten, we approach each
other without knowing
the mettle of which
we are made. even
after years of testing
one another,
acknowledging as many
variables as our hearts
can hold, we will stumble
upon the end of
things and realize
that we failed to detect
the significance of one or
more properties,
overlooked the
hard spots that
we thought were
holding us together

monday morning

monday morning
arrives early
to draw our blood –
we learn to greet
one another
with this much
lightheadedness

we gather behind

we gather behind
standardized tests
because there is
nothing that fills
in the bubble
so completely
