losing track

thirty days hath September
April, June and November
All the rest...

be still now
wait for midnight
witness calendar turn-line
one day to the next
in that moment (geometrically non-existent)
something found?

search - not sure what for
break fingernails on sticky advent calendar doors
push clock hands backward
test for spring
ponder pyramids
mull moon charts
order is not in is not order in

pillow dent - perplexingly familiar
tune your in head in head your head
jolt of no stair where a stair should be
or not
the thought of a list
work yet undone
dust mote clues

are they gone? here?
posing as grocery carts? pineapples? lame excuses?
hide hide hide plain in sight plain sight

are these hash marks? or claw scrapes?
where is that length of string
knotted for remembering?
fingers, toes, rhymes, labels
notes written
losing track of
