unused tarnish squeak
dissemble disingenuous disentangle dismay decay ferment transpose transform emanate refine gather wither wane wax flood ebb mending darning tatting ongoing waiting next to the speaker for the dead that stump old as jesus christ would be grandfather of that fairy ring that family of redwoods in the center of our backyard forest recovering from the tender trespass of brain surgery and the goddamned bark fell off in a huge sheet as if some horrible portend of disaster but lo, it was a new green shoot bearing witness to the many ways of transition
We did that once, rust, side by side, on a couch in the middle of a living room Christmas party in plain view of everyone, no one noticed either the rust or the release change memory refresh shades of story adrift as if bloom fulminate whisky or violin angel’s share vaporize breathe oxidize recant wait weight sliver shave the color of I don’t know always never loving living not that life is tough, birth dusk relinquish forgetting decay as if dismantling wasn’t rebuilding and deconstructing wasn’t imagination
not remorse this coming and going
continuity instead of

When will the nightmare end? he with headphones and sunglasses said again, aimed in my direction; he could have been talking to someone on the other end of the headphones but there was as insistence in the tone which somehow demanded my response, Who are you talking to? No one cares! he answered.
The most cockeyed hello how are you fine have a nice day conversation I’ve had in a while.
Otherwise everyone was full of happy new year and good morning and though I started in winter I finished in spring then home again for black-eyed peas.
