here are the corners

here are the corners
that corner me, still –
i keep these
moments dog-
eared, already
yearning to return

i’m sorry that there

i’m sorry that there
is still more longing here than
comfortable, more

appetite than appropriate,
more false abstention than sense

the air around us

the air around us
tremble before we touch, it
happens every time –

molecules pushing aside
other molecules for a kiss

eight minutes before

i can’t think of you

i can’t think of you
without thinking about how i
should not be thinking

about your lips – saying it means
i am no longer thinking it

one will always feel

one will always feel
for the hairline
crack more
than for any of
the rest. i use this
as an excuse to want,
you prefer it
not be an excuse

it’s unsafe to say

it’s unsafe to say
whenever i undo the
curtain tiebacks in
the bedroom, i recall your
fingers in the morning light,
somewhere between
steadiness
and urgency
,
are we really doing
this?
and we are
doing this
. in a language
that can only reside in the
past, it’s safe to explore
every reimagining
