we act as if time

we act as if time
were limitless, not seeing
the hour, the minute,
the second until it’s out
of view, unrealized
you tell me this
at the bus stop,
waiting for
the 22 on Mission,
as if it were the best
place to stop time,
delay departures

if time ran parallel

if time ran parallel
and eventually
into the same great
ocean, we needn’t
be afraid of
separation, my
dear. you are forever
attached to me
as i to you, and
even in this one
moment, we are
together and
apart, navigating
by the same sun,
moon, and stars,
cupped by the same
wind and waters
