Brevity

The Boat, collage on vintage postcard, 2022

today, there are boats in the window
today, a bird

today, my body is a lost pair of slippers
today, like a sliver of pineapple

tomorrow, an innuendo of blank spaces
tomorrow, like a ballet of hands

tomorrow, on a street identical to this one
i will look in your eyes 
and see two hungry pomegranates

tomorrow is a feast for screwdrivers 
a time zone ravenous 
for order and indifference
