Your Profitable Smile

How strange you are! How strange am I!
Let’s look each other in the I, and see if we
can find a range of something shared. If we can’t,

let’s make it up until we make it through.
Having dared at least to try to see the you in me,
the me in you, can be sufficient for a while.

But keep your profitable smile. Smiles can catalyze
the true – let you play pretend until you’re
actually seeing me, and I am really seeing you.

And if we never do? Pretending beckons warm,
affectionate connection, too; even more, 
alchemically can make the wish it apes come true.
