when i realize

when i realize
things develop more quickly
in the dark if i close the door
— i close the door

i smile enigmatically

surprised to be listening
to the fugitive
life of things

— wrists clicking
bones turning
biologically (i think)

here’s an unsolicited sound
of shoulder cuffs rotating
my face towards breathing

Michelle &Michael
are there as well
— articulating

about a box
of sorted ‘Questions’
— imparting something
(history; as best as i can tell)


for Real Toads
