even between you

we are all at once

we are all at once
secure and insecure
about the space
between us –
with no agreed upon
unit of measurement,
we have to
negotiate every
vibration, adapt
to each curve,
swallow words
in different
combinations and feel
the push and pull
of acceleration
with a new gravity
.

at any given

at any given
moment, the
elevator chimes
may start playing
ping pong
so smoothly
that someone will stop
to listen
and forget
to referee the two
harmonious
pitches
careening
up
and down
the spaces in between
.
