I Overcome Physics

— for A.S. I lie awake at 2 a.m. as subatomic particles collide somewhere a train enters a terminal while you untie your robe an explosion rattles windows you button your coat cursing the cold I bite my tongue until it hurts to keep from touching you you regret your new shoes as horses stand asleep somewhere the instant space swallows light the proof of some fabric we could not weave you chew your bottom lip then remove your gloves somewhere a glass is emptied & refilled as I measure the distance between us
