spatial reasoning

you tell me you need

s p a c e,

so I close the door and

retreat, taking up less

space so you can have more –

but in between the chores we

hadn’t done I wonder when there

will be

s p a c e

for me

in all of this.

so carry my name across the ocean

There is so much

here, in the

space between

us, in the

space between

hands that crave

holding and mouths that

crave more than

the polite sentences they

are forced to

construct, and

there is so

much said

here, in the

space between

us, in the

words we can’t

say.
