Words like “Me” or “You”


Sometimes friends can sit together and suspend
the need to talk – and in that quiet, thought
may loosen from the mind to find another home –

roam into the atmosphere, construe an ambiance
instead of brewing syllables, so that constabulary
functions of vocabulary now no longer matter –

but scatter into air. It’s not like no one’s there, but
separation seems untrue. Words like “me”
or “you” no longer mean quite what they used to.
