embraced
your hands placed
twisted, turned
I linger
my fingers
rest
my eyes test
focused
intent
on
your awareness
in
this eternal moment
content
how we complement
a one-syllable word
uttered
in recognition
but that’s not all that’s said
your wry smile
hanging for a while
it is
and it isn’t
all at once
how we are
and aren’t
at the same time
harmoniously dichotomous
like two separate strings played
a chord made
