Small Envies

i trace paths
make inroads
between sofa and ottoman

feel their push 
against the backs of my legs

sometimes i wish for other

days
    when thin light stretched full
months
    which cycled through me
    with predictability
years
    in which i was the delta
    between hill and sea

small envies
those wishes 
like nuts before roasting

hard and sweet

On Account



the agreement was made out of love
compacted into ground glass

I find my hands in front of me
shovels, have just enough left
for the slow daily
shaving of self

a promise of forever
locked into glass's light
