4/27/10

it all happened so fast


first, you held the tips
of my fingers in your palm
and we stretched the moment 
like a rubber band
with clenched 
teeth


i have a single string
of invisible control 
on everything and this time
it didn't snap


but then it all unwound 
like a spring 
and it all happened so fast,
so suddenly 


and the sky starting falling, chunks
of painted cement, new drapery 
of trees


i will promise not to think 
of mahogany wood; 


i can't be aware of my heartbeat at 
the same time.
