inertia

this is a harmless obsession this intermittent intrusion of your silhouette upon my thought framed with a soft click and a flash and barred from further consideration your laughter in dreams heard awoken from and willfully forgotten or maybe not they intrude echoed in conversations with people who are not like you who are more than you so i ask why you of all should engage my neurons pulsating in tales flowing through words suctioned into a wormhole of what-ifs arrested into pretty pictures of false memory of the rain pattering on street puddles electric starlight winding around shrubs through mist cold railing the curb on which we slump and i could smell the smoke clinging to your shirt and i hated it but why are you still here stuck like the last song is it the weather is it your grin is it just me bored humming a catchy artless tune but all is well and hurtless between us is no equivalence here is no gravity and i don’t believe in free fall

this is a harmless obsession
this intermittent intrusion
of your silhouette
upon my thought
framed with a soft click and a flash
and barred from further consideration
your laughter in dreams heard
awoken from and willfully forgotten

or maybe not

they intrude echoed in conversations
with people who are not like you
who are more than you
so i ask why you of all should engage
my neurons pulsating in tales flowing through words
suctioned into a wormhole of what-ifs
arrested into pretty pictures of false memory

of the rain pattering on street puddles
electric starlight winding
around shrubs through mist
cold railing the curb on which we slump
i could smell the smoke
clinging to your shirt and
i hated it

but why are you still here
stuck like the last song
is it the weather
is it your grin
is it just me bored, humming
a catchy, artless tune?
but all is well and hurtless

between us is no equivalence
here is no gravity
and i don’t believe
in free fall
