I catch a glimpse of myself in a many-sided mirror

at the Westfield mall where I go to exchange a blue cotton shirt

w/ scallop collar for a smaller size. what is living like for you?

Peregrinating through night, his breathing next to me remains

inconsolable & our affection biodegrades, white

pine fluttering slow snowfall, but I wake in upset light

to find it didn’t stick, this strange grifting continues

cardinals and their feathering, hyper before distant peaks
