Day 328
8:28 pm

connect, disconnect


two lovers
send dried leaves to each other
in the mail

two lovers
wake in different cities
to the same chorus

two lovers
never match but wear each
others clothes

two lovers
wish to meet each others
families and hide their own

two lovers
decide which side of the bed
belongs to who

two lovers
wait patiently for particular moments
to lovingly offer advice

two lovers
begin to become less and more

two lovers
hold on to their habits
despite the requests to change

two lovers
wait for the fruition
of uncertain promises

two lovers
dangle their frustration
on occasion

two lovers
disagree on how they
see things changing

two lovers
send goodbyes
to their old love letters


she recalls the day
the call came to report death
she lost her body


we had an opportunity

you and i

i invited

you came

i pitched

you reviewed

and now we both think the other
