you and i still stop

you and i still stop
for the possibilities
of mutant clovers

sometimes – faith, hope, love, luck – caught
growing between every gap

it’s all well and good

it’s all well and good
to state that we will not show
up, that we will take
to the streets, show
solidarity by stepping out
of housework, child
care, maybe apply
some self-care at
the local beauty
parlor, therapeutic
spa. meanwhile, a
host of silent women
will step in
to fill the gap, make
the lunches, file the
nails, listen to and
nod and listen to the
ones who insist on
being heard

eight lifetimes and two
worlds away, we acknowledge
the distance without

becoming succumbed by the
absence, pinched by the emptiness

we appear to close

we appear to close
the gap between the things we
know and the things we

don’t know, year after year, but
it’s only from a distance

i remember making a right
turn somewhere back
there, don’t you?

doubt is a nurtured

i break character

i break character
to stay with you – it is
really not enough, but
by turning towards
you, it is
a transoceanic start
