one from the list

November 8, 2018

so much is said
with just a silhouette;
hard to avoid the sky
and what is carved from it

take one from the list
of delightful gestures,
arranged in some
magic and painful alphabet
to form chronologies,
and lay it next to
the previous one

how many of the moments
that we cram into a day
will linger into the night
last until the morning
weave in and out of weeks
and lodge in our story

yet it is
the fleeting
hung together
that makes up a life –
strung as it is between towers of
the bold tragic triumphs,
the thunderandlightning

… pause … glimpse the silhouette …

the heart picks up its burden
– the suitcase of magic and pain –
and gets back on the bus
