untitled (the first year...)

the first year
of us is packed in boxes
stacked like hurdles
in the front hallway
they trip me up
on my way out the door

year two
is mixed up and in
need of dividing
separating
a masterpiece
turned into the work
of what is mine
and what is yours
and what is
indivisible like
baby names and
matching rings and
sadness

at night we lay
under the cover of
year three
which stretches beyond
the edge
of our bed
like a universe
