  • Even though the calendars are off the wall
    a deadline looms.
    Between this then and that now,
    a gulf of time
    as fluid and restless as the wind billowing sheer and shadowed curtains

    Lists on the table
    try and make order of the general unraveling.

    I wake and, in the dark, remember items to add.
    By morning they are forgotten,
    like the stain from Prestik on the wall,
    a reminder something was here.

    The cat tracks the sun from room to room

    I draw a broken shell
    using the eraser to reveal light
