what first was empty
then carefully filled
now drains away –
how much longer
before the vessel cracks

  half-brewed coffee
leaks out the old pot’s middle
unable to surface
the lies
I’m used to telling

    on this gloomy day
a butterfly sups
on honeydew
while you and I negotiate
the slopes of heartbreak hill

your smile
across the room
tells me
all I need to hear
… she smiles back

  thin steam above
a cup of her favorite tea
all his excuses
start with him awakening
in some rabbit hole

    I want to hear
you enter our room
take your pillow
through miles and centuries
lay it down somewhere else
