42 (for janet hamill)

let’s talk about collisions
how one body impacts another
easy choices
better ways to combine our love
no better way to make one’s living
living for today – tomorrow – seamless mondays
springs – summers – rolling down your favorite hill
like water flowing from a tap / you (a cloud) tapping on my window
if i had a window that close to the ground
or if you a ladder
you’d still make it on time for brunch
or your next career
a painting – a handyman – around collision point
to make things easy – beautiful – seamless
a passionate new breed of stargazers
re-entering the atmosphere from the jersey side
@ the apex where the river meets the sky
a wireless tightrope walker @ the height of freedom
in freefall
walking on air in any season @ one’s own convenience
something you can bank on
your words / or language / or less
naked knees forming irregular circles
through the holes in your celestial birthmark
your love of science
of horses
your ability to combine heaven & earth
& how the hairs grow on one’s head
& are made to stand up on end
how to move things long or short distances
how to more or less move things around to
avoid collisions
@ all costs while colliding
chapter @ verse with your beliefs

held momentarily in the station
to avoid further collisions with the solar system
