lines

 

zipping, unzipping
ripping apart
infinite lines
intertwine for some time

strangers pass
atoms nearly bounce,
a soft crash.

split seconds
locked eyes
reflect visions;
an eternity.

boy, don’t you see
divinity in split seams?
we avoided a difficult weave,
but our We existed.

keep walking
return your gaze to the ground

a moment that held
broken barriers
stillness and speed
fights and family
the final explosion.

each step forward
releases the tie
until we fray apart

I don’t remember
our time together,
but mine met yours.
