The impermanence of things

Like shattered glass
the broken heart
continues

glued

by organs
&
time
&
the future
&
circulation

the body

forgiving
the lost hope
of a winter
of things

you held on
for as long
as you could

attending to
lost stories

~○~

far away closeness
today’s best guess
tomorrows

daydream

the dawn is starry
3 floors
above ground
the full moon
beams
&
hides

~○~

past the concrete
&
past the clay
&
past the crystal clouds

forget-me-not

you embody
this of cærulean

flower
studying it
on dusk’s wings
to memorize
yourself

to remember
what maybe
no one else
would
