Two Pieces of Thread

Entwine. Elizabeth, there is you and you. All else
is not-you — a blur, a shadow, a detail of a detail,
a watering can without a garden.

The man | sits upon a lonely loveseat.

Not today. The chalkboard eraser works overtime.
Trade me a kiss for a kiss. Even your silence coos.
No Vacancy. Unextinguishable bonfires light cold
evenings. The tour guide surrenders. Even bull ants
relax.

There is you and you (for me) — orange in tint, for
I am red and you, yellow. A sunrise turns to sunset.
The moon smiles. Wolves hide angry fangs. You
and me. You with me. You, a part….

Salt and pepper shakers. The water in fall making
a waterfall. A couplet, doublet, duet, duo, match,
pair, twosome,… sole, unit, one,… whole, entire,….

Elizabeth,….
