For an action
Preordained, or instantly planned,
Sometimes leading to crisis,
Sometimes solution.

Staccato drafted in layers
Of complicated carbon past
And cross-stitch seamed
By our choices.

I don’t take my heart
To a fast food restaurant,
Quickly in and out,
I’d much rather prefer if
We got good at home cooking

pain not from concentrate
fresh-squeezed blood, unfiltered sadness
in/out of breath, and veins
winter yet it hardly rains
lost in a field of what ifs again

He is

a graying, yellow ribbon
tied around my neck;
fraying daffodils in bloom.

Yellow

a daisy sprouts out my eye,
and yet another
out my side…
are their other
corpses as vibrant
as mine?
