in the silhouette
of you – joy, sorrow, madness
unraveled, calm, pain –

no indication except
the capacity to contain

sooner or later,

sooner or later,
or for some time already,
we will find ourselves
in the same shoes, one
against the faceless
many who conjure
corporate legalese
that secures them
a place at the table –
in the board room,
we are all little men,
forgetting
and unforgetting
we do this to ourselves

i am still

i am still
paying for the
unraveling of
mysteries,
and you are
still
trying out
the answers
in the dark.
there are some
words we
never
use, for fear
of suffocating
in the absence

after all these

i arrived wrapped

i arrived wrapped
securely

in the name of
my father, a hammock
imagining
two trees

when i depart, they
will unravel
these strokes
chiming
my name, and still
two trees
