Time Loop

By | 1 June 2022

Back to bar soap
back to air drying
back to lying
on our backs with our hands on our abdomens
breathing in for four, holding for four
breathing out for four, then holding, empty, for four

Time is looping
“Strange things are afoot at the Circle K”
mourning dove, tell me again how time is a symptom of love
my friends and I keep making jokes about shame
and how we need it this Shame Month
“Happy shame!” the teenage actress will write
to help me to manifest it
but it’s been collecting from nowhere
bundles of dust held together by hair
that just appear on my laminate floor

The future enables the past, time is a billiard ball hitting itself
someone tattooed the moon on my arm after looking
up the phases and practicing one or
two times on an orange and

I would be lying if I said I didn’t think every night
about something, like the way you whimpered once
or the way your mouth looked sleeping
