in the beginning was

in the beginning was
the word, and the word
was stella, rapping so
gently at my
window with her icy
knuckles this morning –
despite forecasts
and city shutdowns
and a state of emergency
declaration and thousands
of plows deployed
across the boroughs,
and lining up outside
grocery stores under
a cool blue sky –
despite everything, still
leaning on her southern
charm, like a new art form

at the movies, we

at the movies, we
are twice
as vulnerable as
we are invincible.
it’s a practice
run of sorts –
memories
brushing
up against us,
murmuring take
my hand, step
into the light

theater-hopping in

theater-hopping in
the multiplex was a game
we used to play on
hot summer days,
one disposable
blockbuster at a time.
nothing beats learning
how to build consensus
in the cool comfort
between fantasy
and mystery

i want to break

i want to break
it to you slowly,
quickly, every
other second
like i am two
selves vying
for the same

plot twist –
you laugh, but
you don’t see
it coming

i break character

i break character
to stay with you – it is
really not enough, but
by turning towards
you, it is
a transoceanic start

extracting the news

extracting the news
this morning,
it’s still theater – this
practice of trading
one old victory
for another
