as long as we are

as long as we are
alive, it will never stop –
this need to feed and
be fed –
we look to our
allies, when we
should be looking
for accomplices

because we have become

because we have become
one another’s best
references for joy,
love, loss, and pain,
we can make new
discoveries with more
clarity and in half
the time and effort it
would take were
we to go at it
alone. when life
is a big jigsaw, and
time is a toddler caught
stealing pieces, it’s
always better to
have an ally
