in hopes once more
a friendly energy
money left on the table
and maybe
a way to make this work

a means of using
tyrannical reserves

to our benefit
a strong defense

take a page from change
in this case,
make it an arrangement
be willing to fail
be broken into pieces

if nothing else,
it could help ease some fears
after so long
because obviously
I’m not to your liking

that’s why
if there’s any room left

all’s well that ends well, right?


There is

an energy
translated in time
unique, quickening
existing to be lost
in expression,

an openness
urges that please
clarity, business
divine dissatisfaction
rushing into lungs,

keeping us

sigh again

heat                                      embrace

hands                                   waist

foreign                                 tongue

familiar                                taste
