Together, apart

If we can see two

Then you and I must speak

Because a person will be more than a number

 

If a first distance

Seems to be getting closer than other first distances

There must be more to it than the time it takes to say A is not B

 

And since you have started away from me

We must open and close there and back time and time again

Because, now, this closing distance, in all the distances, has to be re-counted

 

And I neither see further reasons nor need for them

We are completely excused from the longer action of staying away

As all other distances might only come and go to exclaim this one better

 

And, until then, still now, we must

Together, apart
