decisive coalescence

coordinated happenings
unwrapping expectations.
the bleating of want,
and bleeding over dinner.
mouths do open
while hands will reach.
farther across a chasm
as panes of sand disperse.
purposed acquisition
and waterlogged inquiry.
be wary of whom you listen to,
but know who lies so near.

this violin sonata,
it pops through the speakers to deafen.

tributaries stretch
and lights grow large.
too bright for comfort,
these signals we can’t ignore.
I carry a fading flower,
one I met on the cold way home.
petals briefly raised
on an incandescent Friday.
and ordinarily, I’d roll my eyes
at yet another bad joke.
but atrophied rationalities
are stories cuttingly real.
