Sometimes two people

come together with their bodies

and it is so like the way

they feel inside

and the first person holds out

an apple to the second

and the second holds out

an oar to the first

and they float away smiling

using neither.


Sometimes something

will burst between them

like a star or something

a layman can’t name

something far away

in space that becomes

less and more of itself bursting

apart in that lack of gravity

having all of its pieces

nearby and whole.
