here, time melts, unfrozen
and runs down to bathe us in wild sweat and tears
work, we are finally moving
getting things done worth doing, breathing
in the heartbeat of a second’s time won
over our own loves,
I can just be a person and not think why.
difficult to explain – let’s just say that I am finally sleeping deep
in home’s arms.
no one is complaining about homework or food
because a fifteen year old girl died yesterday
and we are fighting for the moment,
winning some small part of glory for now
before we follow her.
