Connecting with your mate, become aware
it’s possible that one of you will listen
with every fiber of your being, care
enough to fish into reality; maybe not forgiving.
It’s not about good judgment or being fair
and, not to be confused with old suspicion,
this quality of engagement feels so rare
(because a normal human act’s controlling or permitting)
and when connection happens, every hair
raises like two spirits who are kissing:
so shall we offer up our truth and dare
because it’s all there is – and, frankly, all that’s missing.
