autumn is more than grains of wood repeating,
white stone whistling, drops of oil hearing traffic
and vanishing - a stranger who saw someone missing.

wordless is nothing shameful. decide now
if you would let a broken rain gutter stay
where there is no house.

someone’s cigarette on a driveway
saw the world to come.
empty movie drifting through wires in the trees,
and they took turns repeating:
they are small themselves.

splinters behind my eyes -
used a pocketknife without wondering how.

the whole world remembers nothing.
a system of stinking alleys rolled into the shadows,
all that is over using the next door urinal -
creations already looking down are helpless.

the man sleeping in the mountains
will go to god and take this pill,
whatever it is. morals dragged under,
show yourselves.

temptation - someone always interrupting -
read further and listen for a new way of looking
at regular drinkers coming home, still thinning
so you can forget they go to god
expecting to live alone.
a good idea in her ear
could be anyone’s name,
all the things on the road asking
if it wasn’t a story, asking if we understand
details without visitors - I expected bodies
for sale and her affections set to one side.

what had to be frenetic became impossible
to be replaced, plotters opening doors -
a final amnesia drops into the sun.

I recognize the pattern to lose interest,
to see you follow while the worlds around us,
one by one, their dresses falling, disappear.
say the name you know
won’t leave you. say the name
or say nothing - soon the living
can’t stay home. imagine saying
the name that can stop it.

imagine understanding it was right
dropping out of school
to see your father die
and sometimes it comes back
with a vision. imagine
if you really wanted out -

hear the grass dying
in the background.

and there is no someday hope
that you can remember,
that no one has died,
and now it owns you -
living as a punishment.

see how a long time
is only a thing in my pocket
a moment ago.
