some days, reaching up

even when facing

even when facing
the same direction, we will
notice different things,

rest our gaze on one perch longer
than another, be uneven

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: uneven

back then, when we were

back then, when we were
lost, we looked into each other’s
faces for a sign,

an attempt at direction,
using smiles as our compass

while the gears

while the gears
are still
turning, your
thoughts are
locked into
my thoughts
like balanced
forces, equal
in size and
opposite in
direction, holding
us momentarily
at rest

even two lampposts

even two lampposts
facing the same
breathtaking
sunset for thirty-four
years may look
away now and
then, blink one bulb,
then the other, try
for something
less golden,
show up
not so rigid

after long exposures,

after long exposures,
the body naturally
establishes shortcuts,
fashions new
corridors to ease
the journey,
all the while, keeping
the same distance

it is difficult

the matter of you

the matter of you
reflects the light of
immeasurable
longing, an outline
of indeterminate
emptiness, a compass
that hungers

supported by the same

supported by the same
resilient timbre, responsive
branch, each blossom
grows and unfolds
into its own
weight –
the way you and i
can look in the same
direction, be
on the same page,
yet draw such
different constellations
