time comma maybe – Colleen Choate

time comma maybe
to lower standards
necessary foodstuff
is i) coffee smell
ii) wildflowers comma
dried iii) wool
sweaters –  I
miss your skin
smell comma warm
comma always?

(trails on) (bellies on)
the way you on

tetley tea to go on
for the length of your fall
rain my lungs are
our house with blankets
in our chests catching
throats cabin smell (n):
smoke (wood kind)
mold (allergic kind)


isolated ecosystems
built & collapse
overnight over minute
but when I bump you
synapses start running
electric & yours do
and then you
run into someone
who runs
into me &
this is an ecology
