No, Words

seeking intent as though
history is a failed event
and every conceivable
action is a newspaper
article — the obituary
page — the business
news — scores from
the coliseum — bodies
collapsed and deflated
by intransigence —
each and every event
recorded as though
when we kissed behind
the wedding party
it was newsworthy —
even if I’ve lost track
of how many years
it’s been before
the first
