after a while, we

after a while, we
will lose track of what to follow –
a line, a curve, a

scent, a thought – only perhaps
the reach of radiance stays true

i do and i don’t i hear
you say.

things change.
twenty years later, you
are eighty weeks and two
days dead.

things change.
i am reading
the days run away
like wild horses over the
hills

just when it feels

just when it feels
like the number of
hoops they will
make you
jump will be
infinite, along
comes a reminder
that everything
is finite

teeter-tottering

teeter-tottering
on the edges of feelings,
the corners of thought,

there is a likelihood of
losing oneself, unraveling

the point that we are waking
up more often than

in the middle of

in the middle of
the night, words have
a tendency to flow
backwards, feelings
make a decision to

dissipate. sleep

like honey to flies,
slowing down each

on the fifteenth

on the fifteenth
anniversary, the thought
of you arranges
itself into the corners
of each hour, flashes
with so much
vibrancy and
color, it is a
wonder how two

stuck in the
past, a permanent
impermanence

was able to put away
the thought of
separation, restock
the shelf behind
our bathroom
mirror with all
of your familiar things
