separate clauses

it's a hard thing,

this lucid living:

sitting on a donated couch

in an already-sold house

with someone whose grave

I had just visited.

"but I've been to your

grave,"

the words unspun

from tangled teeth.

It was hard to know

just what to say;

so into the void left

by contradiction rang out

"... well, I guess...

how have you been?"

a fluorescent full moon guided {us} quilted moths. gravel crunched, nails clicked. where the wall meets the sidewalk leaked the giggle of a shared secret. we've encrypted these moments like the finger

water & salt

a quip - the last of the rarest jokes on earth like snowfall > April showers - befell. We shared this moment the way two people watch a performance of King Lear.

I don't care that you dreamed about me. a not-so-great man once oh-so-greatly said, "I don't think about you at all."
