Space Between Us

Negotiating our closeness

Half human, half universe,

Made of distant worlds in different ways

Time and space dilate and expand, contract and sigh

We are the void and the nothingness between heavenly bodies

And our bodies are heavenly

As we move through the spaces of each other

Distant and near

Far but here

Listening while trying to hear over the song of the spheres

Reflecting in each other’s light

Orbiting, pulling closer

Until we collapse
