all winter long,

all winter long,
savoring the
cucumbers
we pickled
last year, when
we worried
about excess

the stuff that keeps you

the stuff that keeps you
up at night are the unfore-
seeable
things – you

close your eyes, try to see all
the things you hope you do not see

i always worried

i always worried
that i wouldn’t know how to
pick the freshest, sweetest,
ripest vegetables when
it came down to it,
standing in front of
a pile of greens, reds,
oblongs. in between
snippets of conversations
with fellow shoppers,
even ones who look like
they’re on a mission,
i finally realized
it’s mostly guesswork

at the end of it

at the end of it
all, warning or no
warning,
there will be
separation. until
then, we worry
about everything
in nothing

we will secretly

we will secretly
worry, lose
a night of sleep
here and there, hope
our bodies can
recover enough
every morning
so that we
may never be
this careless again

the minute before

the minute before
the minute is a
clot, not meant to
carry so
heavy a burden –
allow the seconds
to dissolve

there are nerves inside

there are nerves inside
of nerves that require direct
sunlight
every once

in awhile – don’t be afraid
to color outside the lines
