Between Us

Space
is what’s between us
even when I can see you
up close so clearly
hundreds of miles away
because I have
this picture of you—
and your earnest eyes
have no idea
who it is who scrutinizes
their paleness from afar—
and I’ve fallen in love
with the way the mind
can close the distance
and open doors
and erase any gap
or thread that comes
between us.
