Post-Deletions

Remember hissing,
“You never saw this”
during the most
innocuous events?

How eyes closed, one time,
we stepped in
suspense?

Repeatedly
posting this, then
deleting it?

Hearing yet another
“Jingle Bells” remix–
new superhero
lyrics?

If we could only trick Death
into forgetting his list,
his keys, what he
walked in the room for.

Use some amnesiac potion
or just old age.

If we could only keep the breath
whispered into a fist,
meet the ones we’re
clearing our homes for.

Read the ocean
till the last wave.

Sit the Eraser on his backwards ass,
swap postings and deletions.

If we could only–
wait, where were we?

That’s right–setting Sissyphus
in charge of the seasons.
