dragons find their way
into the house each spring and

two-and-a-
half feelings away
from being
unstuck has
become a lengthy
visitor. we sit
at the table
in silence, mostly
afraid to turn
on, check in,
update, call
up, initiate.
when no news
is no longer good
news, but imagining

and-a-half feelings
away from being
unstuck is as sound
a visitor as any

liberally, enters
every nook and

his manners.
this is the part
where we document
the overfamiliarity,
take pictures
