before music became

before music became
portable
, it could tickle
the toes, pull on our
skirts, tease our rhythms,
and make small talk

absorbed, seeing
without looking

between brooklyn
and manhattan
we stretch our
determination

across the waters,
beneath each

more often
than not
a stranger
to ourselves, let
alone to those with
whom we traverse
the journey home
