[[lava sounds that burn so good]]

     whenever you are near
         you (MacBook sound and )
knock me down,
    but i don’t mind cause
      i'm also reaching out 
in space    standing   so close
to the bottom of the bathroom
once and awhile thinking about you --
   checked to pieces); waiting to go home
       while    looking  out the  apartmentwindows  @
   you   :   matted hair  and gnarled hands
     with cold palms more powerful than traffic on ice --
      i've been waiting all night, actually
    i've waited most  my life.
       burning holes
     calmly in leaves
sitting next to the river
like a little girl
   long enough to know
      one afternoon
            the   steady jobs not enough
        paying for what we haven't got
