Jordan Stempleman

Punctual, then to fork

for not knowing hands
before they become
for what is
a placement
for what hasn't
been placed
this close

to signal
that I've been near
and to take
even as it's given

can't seem to draw upon
what face to use for settled

last to admit
for the need of lights
when happening
doesn't supply a tally
for unsaid length

people cart
an unknown willing
to interval to idleness
this without that
as to know
how and when it arrived
