or maybe we’re like pavement and skinned knee, 
like, doritos after swimming, pruned hand 
in a bubble bath, sloshing glittery 
mixture like, grass pie left for fairyland. 
or maybe we’re like “new-to-me" love seat 
like, oil change reminder in the mail, 
kitchen counter stack with nowhere to eat 
like, tell me about your day in detail. 
or maybe like, binoculars—and birds? 
like, sharing the arts and culture section, 
sharing my specs so you can read the words 
like, is it too late—for introspection? 
or maybe we are here. as in, us two. 
as in, being. as in, it's all on cue.
