Jul 2018
a shadow of yourself
seen on the corner eloping
with fading ones and zeroes

an air that blows away only
your surroundings--and leaves
you intact to live alone in a historical
moment--without any of the content

you remember or could touch

an illusion that almost has flesh,
a memory that leaves a scent which
conjures the corollary taste--trust

or something like it, mixing with
your saliva as the enzymes
break it down into empty calories

we entrust our bodies to others,
but no more as we become both
satiated and malnourished at once
