No Architecture Can Forget / new poems 2010

Collapse Into Now

i hide myself inside glass and beam
of this old house

from feelings i left
to weather beyond recognition

in places of impermanence,
in pieces scattered
in paradises left wanting

but not from your love

nor from the wind's reminders
of the tender, timely shelter of your arms

but forever from
the walls i fashioned
to forget the fall

but never the collapse into now
where i am safe and warm,
secure inside a house your heart
has made a home where i can hide
inside your love from memories
of a howling, hollow rain
no architecture can forget
