between spells of separation and togetherness

a hyperawareness 
of mind/body, 
love/break ups,
as well as feelings of dissociation. 

a bunch of books 
hold up the window,
letting winter in. 

I'd rather be cold
than hot.
I'd rather be funny
than attractive. 

triple feature,
tired feet,
a quilt made of old t-shirts. 

something about falling in love
on a cold winter's day
while walking around Brooklyn
listening to The Tallest Man on Earth.
