[*a tone*]

Gia Gonzales

[begin again] [begin in that]
[into a more conventional]
[*impression of an impression of*]
[your fingers] [(meaning what?)]
[in the other room] [*a tone*]
[discomfort precipitating that
movement] [privileging of your]
[(was it exhaustion?)] [voice]
[which I hadn’t begun to perceive
then] [*a punctuating machination*]
[begin again] [(gauging from
the loudness of an object)] [*a tone
which demarcated time
*] [(and knew
there was love)]
