Ephemera

Ephemera

  • I’m solving that old equation: Exactly
    How to undo
    The geometry that holds us
    Suspended

  • The diagram takes
    A cunning shape
    Sharp to the touch,
    and precarious:
    A cat’s cradle tangled
    A jangling mobile hanged
    On a steel wire net

  • It’s an acrobatic trick,
    Disarming this love
    Trip one wire, and the shock
    Will set the rest to humming
    Vibrating our small constellation till it shatters

  • Holding my breath
    I clip at your heartstrings
    Hoping this whole thing doesn’t shake apart
    If I’m subtle enough
    To slip the knots
    You may never notice me let go

  • Even now I can feel us
    Fragmenting
    Hurtling
    Casting off the vestigial
    and essential
    Indiscriminately,
    And without forethought
    All the while attempting
    A casual disregard
    for regret
