close as you are. ferreting the distance in stabs and confessions. close as we were. impossible choices. scratch the glass.

there are glimpses. the dream wakse me up. in jagged stitches. the holes still open. the knots still easily undone.

touch tempts the mechanics of when. this cold engine. this choice as it were. orbits. tracing the edge. skin's momentum catches us.

soft cages. broken locks. a hungry prison. more predator than friend.

the heavy charms. the melting snow. as the cold befriends us. in tangles and crutches.

the dark labors. the flesh whispers. fading songs.
