31 january

easy enough not to know the date the time a name
arbitrary labels unstable enough to come off
a natural leader in uncertain directions
to echo warm and strengthen
to step away, left fly
chasing after meaning well

patience past the stumbling through words
stepping back from hoping after more
scenes with scripts unsteady at their best
characters and plots unravel

an end to apologies
a corner to turn

30 january

and we realize later
the things we’ve looked forward to –
nachos, pajamas, quilt on the couch –
these are also only what comes before
something else
we weren’t waiting for

noticing the notnow times
nothere places
without anyones

these are also times

let us not look past
seeing only otherwise else

29 january

tired of firing all the pistons –
they do their job –
our positions are off course of course
and the angles only try
we calculate but miss factors
the variables – secondguess the x
if we keep trying anyway
the stubbornness within us
the icy sidewalk anyway
