An emptiness emerges and edges out a thick placeholder, embedded is a
switch as simple as electricity. A broth enters a being to find the correct
reception and light up a dark space with charged darkness. Where it’s made
and originates: a clear receptacle good for seeing into that soon seeps into me
and then the one I call you.

A pill that will somehow wake me to her ingredients: she uses blueberries to
stud a stack of pancakes. On this other hand, strawberries suggest red: a girl
with freckles sips bright juice through a pink straw while wearing rose-colored
glasses. I remember reading about this, I should know it by heart.

But bananas are better for brighter breakfasts for me and her: more mornings
running for the bus become memories as I’d rather keep my breath. Thanks,
details, you’ve done it again, a flick of the surgeon’s wrist and I’ll be the one
turning on.

Some pink scissors snip into simple statements. Knit-picking knowledge from
the page to the stage and then back again. Use a fuse to do it for you. Ask
Mapquest to track your path. I’ve fared fairly well in denial of dying.

In the shower I lowered my head so that he could wash it, he being me and me
being in the interim. This was a promise I’ll keep: how energy and entropy fell
in love and time exists because they continually stick it out.

I wrote this all from memory, ok? A light in my mind that couldn’t
communicate with the sun but then won. The illusion of language at all. But
the sticking point is this.
