UNTITLED

 

there’s this one thing in london
in the fall some time between
october and november
when a fox cries into a trash bin
and the thames is only as dirty as you like
and it might be the rain but i’m not sure

there’s this one thing in philadelphia
between 2am on march 13th 2016
and 3am on march 13th 2016
when there’s more breathing
between the fitted sheet and the flat sheet
than two bodies and brains and bones
and more lost than sixty minutes
and it might be time but i’m not sure

there’s this one thing in dallas
on the roof of a parking garage
on july 4th 2011 at 8:57pm
when the fireworks aren’t red
or white or blue and glass domes
with climate control make you feel
like planet earth is as far away as the moon
and it might be the heat but i’m not sure

 


 

ALSO UNTITLED

 

i’m sorry that weeks seem like seconds and minutes seem like days and
i’m sorry that you can’t wake up without hating yourself because you can’t wake up and
i’m sorry that you can’t get out of bed for any other reasons than obligation, guilt, and fear, in that order.
i’m sorry that there are only twelve donuts in a dozen and if we both have one and then split a third there will only be nine left and
i’m sorry that this will be our breakfasts for a week and
i’m sorry this means having one donut each for breakfast for four days and splitting the ninth on the fifth and not eating breakfast at all on the sixth or the seventh and
i’m sorry that all the cinnamon sugar donuts are gone if we get to the shop any later than eight thirty and
i’m sorry i’m sorry i know how hard it is for you
i’m sorry.
i’m sorry that morning breath is even a thing and
i’m sorry that you don’t believe me when i say yours isn’t even bad and
i’m sorry that you’re so aware of your breathing but maybe that’s a good thing and
i’m sorry that sometimes ghosts are our only company.
i’m sorry that coffee doesn’t have any nutritional value and
i’m sorry that sometimes it makes you feel nauseous but you can’t ever tell when this will happen and
i’m sorry that the caffeine doesn’t suppress your appetite in the ways that you want it to and
i’m sorry that you’ve internalized a reflex that stops you from crying when you want to and
i’m sorry that there are so few hours of daylight in november.
i’m sorry that
and
i’m sorry that the moon is so far away but maybe it belongs there.
