we are ever four

several bites into

several bites into
sunday, we will
suddenly
wish to slow
down, savor
every sunday
second, in our
eyes, in our
ears, melting
too quickly
on our tongues

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: savor

we wish for that card-

by the pacific

by the pacific
shore, we are balancing rocks,
one for each prayer or

wish or anticipation
or joy, dad carried them all

there is an old, new

there is an old, new
paralysis – a hitchhiker
on the most bearable
days, a parasite on
the worst – that pins
down a hand, an
arm, a leg, a morsel
of every hour, crushing
the cells and membranes
of day. we feel
sick about it all
the time, emerge
from the stupor
spasmodically to ask
one another for best and
worst case scenarios,
readjust our negativity
bias for a version
of survival

in between wishing

in between wishing
and having a wish
come true
is a bit of a
mystery, so little
understanding,
even less fanfare

during the Perseids,

during the Perseids,
my heart wanders back to
January 2012,
predawn, unreasonably
cold, cutting
our teeth on the
Quandrantids,
and how
crisp every wish
sounded, riding
to the airport, caught
between staying
and leaving,
and disregarding
these astronomical
hints to impact events

dreams, wishes,

across the city,

across the city,
the stars are hung lower, much
lower so that you

can only wish upon the
city lights for redemption

Spring is late as we

Spring is late as we
stand outside those
glass doors, locked
at opening
hour, hungry
and counting
up every minute past its
due date, fists tucked
into gloves, hidden
in sleeves, forgiving
smiles
frozen ready
