these are the things that i've been noticing:
- email never comes back fast enough.
- two Cirque-school boys do backflips on the subway platform. No one looks but they all see them.
- she was reading a book about oxygen, the cover was the same colour as her panties.
- a couple amidst a thousand stunted smiles kiss - the sensation still new and forbidden
- a grown man bounces a yellow tennis ball down the street as though in middle school. he always smiles
- the young greek lady fingers a strand of worry-beads - the old country is never that far away
- he studies them all quietly - his eyes squint as though he's just read their private thought bubbles. he's blind
- i would write a poem that would make you ask what i cannot answer
