All forces coerce in pairs 

40 ppm of
                  life left
                                 to dissolve

She said she
                       knew of another
                                                      way in

We keep that
                         flicker warm to
                                                       the sole

Flip neon hourglasses
                                         so we don’t
                                                              have to count

Get a torch
                    until it’s all
                                         burned off clean

Take the river
                         through your home
                                                            on the far-side 

Keep the fountain
                                steady even gravity’s
                                                                      incendiary

We need more
                           medicine
                                           the damage has been done

The ripple in
                      the well—hemp
                                                   we pullied into mash

They didn’t know
the real meaning
of detachment

They would fossilize
boysenberry into
secretions

Was it a totem
or a blacklight
pistolwhip

When it would
unfurl
it would spit light

It would decapitate
both heads
at the same time

    In addition to your poetry, I really like the juxtaposition of space and lines. It inserts a cadence that word alone couldn’t accomplish. :0)
