Encumber

there’s just about nothing

just

about nothing, just about

you.

 

or the uncompromising pull

of needing this to be anything

but nothing, everything but

unjust.

 

I’ll take a walk instead

backwards, not to trip on

your shoelaces. They’re always

untied.

I’ll be moving too quickly away

to help you fasten loose ends.
