April – May 2021

April 14, 2021

Midnight. The silence of the house. Computer fans. The whir of the refrigerator. The general sound of air moving through enclosed space.

A repeating muscle spasm in my chest.

Thinking of my friend spending tonight in the emergency room. All the comings and goings and noises of a space that never sleeps.

Midnight and cool breeze through open windows

(lilac in the air this afternoon)

The temporary novelty of bare skin on sandals

Sitting with the impossibility of comprehending the totality of the full moon

Warm air
Wind and onions cooking
Instant time travel
The kitchen in Turrucares
Mincing onions in a processor
And peeling garlic left my fingers sticking together
