You see all my light and you love all my dark
It’s in the spaces
unseen and untamed
where you end – and I start
Where the current flows between
all these constrictions
of who we are and what we’re supposed to be
the moments that snap away
the breath before it’s even breathed.
The steady beat turning faster
and the half seconds before and after speech
it’s in these spaces
that two turn into we.
