(hurrying now)
diaphanous and other secret 
notes i sent you in my mind 

-w love for dt 

shoulder to shoulder
on the bench by the fairgrounds 

minutes adding up 
products of an equation 

making the bottoms
of final hours evanesce

we take internet 
quizzes together and laugh

at our own ridiculousness
hoping the art gallery poetry reading 

at seven-thirty will have 
free wine between real 

talk and movie quotes 
i'm not even mad 

you've never seen roy 
batty cry i love you 

i love you i love you 
life is lived in and in 

between the tears
seconds when my heart 

murmurs to yours 
louder than silence more 

colorfully than sight
you are a beautiful

murmuration of genius 
you are a starling

you are a million million
nkorean missiles in flight

--Paul Koniecki
