Living with You

HOW DO I
get closer to you
and not fall under?

I write you with my mouth
shoulders and hands
the paragraph is numberless

dark text lies between the stars,
planets churn to gloss,
shadows lay down on branches
every sophisticated instrument
evolves to
out-of-focus

the consciousness of this room
bares
time to us

your breath enumerates you

chains of forgetting, silver-
worded with spaces between,
lay across me

I come to you forgetting

in order to come back
I forget
