TINY  HISTORIES

This is what we have:

we have endurance,

 

we have the eloquent example

of numbers: the dinosaurs lived

 

one-hundred-and-fifty milion years,my love,

amd we have our tiny histories,

 

which seem real enough: the daily

frictions in general, your

 

incessant typing in particular.

These small things bring us close

 

to a story even we know the end of.

Sometimes we sit, waiting to be sad,

 

because it is always difficult,

even when it is easy. I know.

 

I had to spoof one or two demons

just to get here, to this family bed,

 

to you: we have at times

this momentum only this current

 

which pulls us toward one other, flush

with oblivion.
