nine times out of

nine times out of
ten, we approach each
other without knowing
the mettle of which
we are made. even
after years of testing
one another,
acknowledging as many
variables as our hearts
can hold, we will stumble
upon the end of
things and realize
that we failed to detect
the significance of one or
more properties,
overlooked the
hard spots that
we thought were
holding us together

what any amount of
resistance can do

painted in
shades of
recognition –
a familiar
sound, distinct
properties at
the tip of the
tongue
, a
similar gesture,
time and space
pressed together

every so often, we

every so often, we
return to the waters
to test our
solubility, to
weigh
our autonomy,
exercise our
immunity, to
dissolve –
hold on to me
as we go
