disappearances and forgiveness
thick pie crusts gone stale
old rancid layers of creamcheese
for breakfast

i wipe it clean
the dribble
the spilt cake
clear now, the glass and the mind
markings in yellow markers swept loose
broken, multiplying and hooked distances
from one another and the other

affable meetings
and stark goodbyes
the lid struck down
not a muscle
nothing winces
the tear is scanty now
yellow markings
down a cheek
you knew
