I Know You, who are you

sliding down

Yesterday I liked to wonder why
you curled in, packaging bones and mind
so neatly in crinkly recycled newspaper
threads curdling into tangled galaxies

Straight ahead and left and right and
Up and down in scored rivers, still
damp leaves clumped in a drain, time breathes

Stale air freshener over our musty stench.
blows away my whys
