the air up here though

oh goodness–these
people
so *faded* to
an alternate
demographic
hiking with Starbucks
in American Apparel
they brought their own
soundtrack
playing photo shoot
from a boombox in too good
a condition
to make any sense

an insurance commercial
a life stuck
on the share button

these
are genuine smiles
LET’S POST THIS
appear to
stand closer to the
edge
for fine adventures

it’s very complicated.

possible i might
not come down
from this
highway crest
in the clouds
here comes the rain, just
a sprinkle
one could feel cold
except the sun-direct
patches of light

you know what it
reminds me of?
as does everything
right now…
when i leave this
mountain
will i leave the memory
of you
here too?

tell me how

when he brings me lighters

the non-stop air
is good
setting of alarms
is good
in the mid-day
blues playing
shade drawn
afternoon of him,
life is good.

i barely made it to
presentable,
chores
and nervous energy.
all wasted at the door
as he steps in.

this is the life now
and soon
dinner somewhere
with just the right
breeze
& lighting
