The distance

To get to you, I'd have to walk
half the distance between us,
then half of the half distance left,

then half of the
half, then half
of the half of
the half,

and so on,

I'd come really close,
but never quite reach you.

Years would pass.

We'd sit at the kitchen table
having dinner without speaking,

as we do today,

our solitudes rising to our ankles, to the knees,
to shoulders, lips and lashes.
