1500 B.C.



I’ve always

envied those people

who invented that bent

little t-square


Measuring the passage of time


Eyeing one shadow

as it makes its way

along the crossbar


How miraculous

that moment must have been

sharing it with another


I imagine

it’s much like my time with you


Like we carved out

those very same crevices

the Egyptians did


Hearts of stone

contorted and formed

an equation so exquisite


That you could see each

and every single memory

we’ve etched onto it


Time does indeed

pass by so easily


As easy as breathing

one could say


When you are falling in love
