the man without qualities (robert musil lifting weights)

 

there was a small, leftover

piece of chalk

on the concrete

from budding fingers that drew

and abandoned

 

there was a softness

a summer six months and six years

ago, that rustled and wrestled itself playfully

to a flocculent bed

clouded

with a manuscript full of medicine

the pages loose as

soldiers strayed in a madness

oceans by each window

water and so much sand

that I lose time counting it all

and remembering

 

there was a lot, there

never again

coming back

more and less each time

always leaving
