run-

[ still looking for the perfect shot for this one]

I at 12:21

[embarking on a journey

I am too afraid to take]

you in the late morning hours
I have known you to sleep.

Out n About narrative

escaping the suspension of motion-
walking, running
taxi cabs and glittering change
anthropomorphous mayhem

workingearlyleaving late

flashing lights, zebra stripes

hasty, nervous first days of work-
minutes past, oceans crossed
brushing your teeth
shaking your dreams
babies born, lovers lost

him and her and a $1.50
coffeecupssixpackschewedgum

drowning

and yet, on the other side
of your morning

Me.
