Fuzzy Math

Remainder rounded
time dilated
the longest moment
of us

Waking up
your absence
turning abscess
leaking into dream

To forget you
once ablution
now routine
if only

It’s over
and over again
make misery
my love

Very Special Relativity

It might make sense
if orbits brought our worlds together
more than once a year
an eclipse too brief to be bearable
if your light wasn’t caught in my eye

Love comes round
more often than I realize
moments when your gravity
swaps the sinking of my heart
for splendor found simply in the sky

Just Living

Love gone loathsome
with distance
child of time and space
of then and now

Do me the disservice
of disbelief
gawk at protestation
too much

Aspirant fool
seeks love’s laughter
substitute for forgiveness
happy accident

When will it be
when is it ever
it’s never
enough

Paralove

With what time remains
love me
make the memory
you need for now

I asked for nothing
and received it
now this
selfish thought

Smile ghost
before you’re forgotten
passing on
beneath the sheets

Whether-proof

There is a dawn
that finds the way
a dusk to end
another day

We rise in hail
to walk through gusts
a pale snow skin
pure as rain’s rust

Thunder rumbles
lightning lands
our hourglass
returns to sand

Still as lonely
we wandering clouds
yet to decide
to speak aloud
