Find us together:

tiptoeing across the fanning pages

of a calendar.


The solstice didn’t differ from Sunday,

or Tuesday. A set chime reminds us,

but the day bleeds its metronomic

in the moon’s empty white.

And when the circle completes and shrinks upon itself,

like rings inside a tree, it can hide like the others,

each cradled

in the next,

And we:

Enveloping a weathered year,
