You sit in a chair
dispersed by breaks of light,
eyes busy tracking that
wall-hugging mossie -
I settle before you,
spread out beneath our
synchronised silences
until later, under a starcrammed sky

words formulate, hang suspended"
(you equivocate)
"Something's always lost in translation"
Yes
a nod in humid cicada air.

And I perceive your reduction,
sense you weave and drown
in the sound of clouds crossing paths.
I have found your beauty, drunk on
the distance that hums between us.

Beautiful..."sense you weave and drown
