The dangerous game

Love

Falling

In

Fast

Free

Fall

Like a balm

Filling an

Empty jar

A spring

Of possibility

Keep refrigerated

3

Medicine for

The sickness

Sickness upon

Sickness

For the medicine

& then

A vaccine

4

Belief in perfection

Game of elation

& imperfection

5

A dangerous game

A most dangerous

Game

Your rules

No board

Invisible pieces

I am the thimble

You are the car

& so

We play

6

Monopoly

A socialist

Game

We’d never know it

Were it not for

Memes

I’d never have 

Guessed

You were

I had to believe

Our printing

Everything

An erudite friend

That enduring

Impression

Of an erudite

Friend

Remembered

A welcome

Change of opinion

The context of

Affection

In conversation

At work

Outside

Sitting on grass

Under sunshine

Talking

Dialogue

It is an interesting

Thing that ideas

Are significant

As much so

As so much else

Maybe more

Obviously

Personal

About you

You have left

This world

Still I remember

The way we thought

Things through together

It meant something

Tangibility

For all lost

There is

Usually

Something

On the

Other side

~○~

Something

Sometimes

Tangible

Sometimes

Intangible

~○~

We don’t believe

In lessons

Learned

Nor that 

Everything

Happens

For a reason

Fate can

Feel

Like

Correlation

But

Everything’s

A fever

~○~

Of things

Of possibility

Nothing is

Guaranteed

We make

Poems

Stories

Multiverses

To hold

Compelling

need

~○~

Transmitted

At a

Void friend’s

Comforting

Door

Lines

Filling

Page

Gage

Of the

Inevitable

~○~

Corporeality

Making

Things

Possible

Impossible

In the

Goings of

The bone machine

Facing

Cloth-wrapped packages

A pleasure to receive

The cloth-wrapped world

This æther

We are of it

I am from it

The gifts of skies

Wrapped in clouds

Mauve

Taupe

Dreams

& reveries

What Saturday

Brings more

Activity

These days

Quarantine

A determinant

Of many things

I don’t resent

I value

The safety we

Build

Wrapping cloth

Masks

Eyes speaking

Faces

A belief

In the future

Of everything

Weekdays we

Make our way

In new ways

Cloth

Paper

Elastic

Life

Art & music

Patience

Cloth-wrapped

Bodies

Eternally

Facing

The possibility

Of making

Anew

Textures of

Things

We weren’t

Expecting

A burgeon

A burgeon

A bloom

A wonderful

Growth

Relatively

Incremental

& yet

Noticeable

You didn’t

Acknowledge

How far

You’d come

After all

Yet

You made it

&

You deserve

The credit

All of you

Perhaps you

Are more

Impavid

More fearless

Than you think

Reaching in

All directions

Even while

Shaking

Hiding tears

So no one

Can see

The both

Sides

The impavid

& the venerably

Vulnerable

Too

But you are

Many things

& you deserve

To be

All of you
