What Have You Been Living With
With moths who have flattened themselves
against the door, and flutter out in front of you,
entering your home before you.
With termites, manufacturers of holes.
Cracked window. Faucet that cannot stop
entirely. Shifty bookshelf.
With hair treated like a calendar, growing
and growing to mark some event or ending.
Minor cavities. Mild vertigo.
With noise inside of you. Or quietness.
Images you can’t wrap your voice around.
With untriggered ailments. Your own
digestion of time. The hours you are making
and storing. A silo. A stream.
