Knowledge

It wasn't the apple
but time: that being

with and under him
is everything good,

but leaving her
behind is evil, and

sometimes you don't
get a choice.

Feather

It was easier when I was
young; I knew every sparrow
was thought of—

It's harder now to know
the emptiness of the universe, that
a fallen bird is just

a fallen bird

Vacation

I know that bliss

Of a stretched out week
And hours that move slowly

Of waking up late
And not making plans—

We'd dress slowly after
A morning together

And move through the day
With all the time in the world

Edge

that winter
we walked along the snow
covered pier

you were
afraid we'd slip into
the icy lake

but I knew
it's impossible to fall
when in love

Produce

I was a different woman
before she was sick

I took her days like I
deserved them—

now I recognise the
universe in the space
between us, the cosmos
in her eyes when she
tells me

       she looked up at the snow
       as a younger girl and was
       lost in its flurry and

I've done that too

as a younger girl

Tank

I'm fine until my
father asks if you and I
still talk, and

I think
       you have run me over
       like a vehicle of war
       and left my body to rot
       on the side of the road


but say
       "no, not really"

Improve

I never learned to swim
and that's okay most of the
time, except

for when I try to fix
myself in your eyes
and

your body is as solid as
water

Eve

and maybe God looked at me
and thought I was hush enough
to live under you

but I'll take you down just
because I want to—

I'll take you out of Eden
for looking the wrong way

Free

if we're being honest
you were the one who got away;

I hold things closer
in the winter, but the cold makes
my hands brittle and

there you go

Derive

to hell with the happy moments,

but what I mean to say it's
these moments I remember
your loss and it's

easier if I'm sad to get
over you, and

to hell with that
