time like a fossil

the cold mornings
wool hats and long johns the
nights beneath layers
cocooned

the bite in the air the
freezing and thawing. a silence
summer would never allow

will winter be up
for extinction?

time
like a fossil
burns fast

super.atomic

yes this was the being yes

this was the cellular

remembering

 

you hoped i would forget i hoped

i would forget

the pain

 

go into it, my darling

go in!

 

the moon is full becoming

back to us like

before

electrons

isolate 4

our huddled loneliness of years past
income fixed
far below the surface
of want

we had one another
and even then

love moved
like science after death
synchronous

exact

we were for us what no one
knew or could
see

electricity of being caught
living this way
otherwise isolate
left 4 lost

then came masquerading in wax
taxing the spirit fallen
away

the heart of ink we smudged
tore in diverse ways
apart

barbed wire knifed
squeezed like cash
touched to fire

pinned on the arm
to fade

o

our hearts located
a drip away from 5
o.clock

your crow foot eyes
see

the past got nothing future
got nothing on you
on me

we got each other
in the city feel the kick
of life

hit the latitude
with attitude over dry and barren highways
east

not one degree short
of circling

encompassing the
earth
