I WATCHED YOUR DOG, YOU BOUGHT ME A PLANT


there shouldn’t be exceptions to rules never written:
what is left turns to smoke or piano reverb:
something unlike anxiety remains which disturbs
the hats on the shelf: my heart is growing bulbous
and incongruent: someday we’ll all look back at this
and erase the worst of it: I am thinking of a bridge
that is metallic and one-lane and leads to a mountainside
of frozen rock: recalculate that paragraph under your tongue
since you’ve forgotten key phrases: I have made you
a barcode now sleep on it: what happened between asteroids
and telephone booths is more than space: I won’t ask you to act
your age, it would seem inappropriate: this time I will be sure
to keep these brown eyes in a place opposite of Bermuda
