borrowed home

it's a hit in the head
a reminder
there may be beams

architecture defies
a body in motion
whose staying depends
on where it goes

inevitability's warm hands
sweat dampened, gray
clasp the tired shoulder

going out swinging
is merely an epilogue
chapter titles are frivolous
missing the point over every i

when sound arises
hearers shake
out of the corner of your ear
listen to the humming light
