A glacial silence
stilled me into
the ground.

I’d heard these words
before.
“You only have a certain number
of days on earth…”
It was a passing phrase,
a fragile bridge between two thoughts
on a radio show that I cannot remember.

A certain number of days…
So why spend them wishing.
So why spend them counting.
So why spend them hoping.

The stillness remains,
and stings my eyes in the same way
that the 23rd Psalm does.
“Surely goodness and mercy…”
Someone thought of that.
Someone counted on that.

What will I say,
years from now,
when people ask with concealed regret
and shaking words-
“…where were you?”

What will I say
years from now,
when I ask
“Where were you?”
and you tell me that
you were waiting.

There’s a jagged comfort
in measuring moments.
60 seconds in a minute.
365 days in a year.
5,280 feet in a mile.

Measured time.
See you soon.
I’ll find you tomorrow.
Goodnight for now.

What is immeasurable
is the distance between us.
A hollow hello.
A vague so long.
The quiet phone.

I was never more sure
of how vast the
distance between us was
than when you were
standing next to me.

And so for now,
I wonder in circles
and wander
and kick at the
leaves.
