Reckoning

Best
if we keep it this way—
you there and me here
separated
by two cliffs
on the edge of reality—
one at your toes
and one at mine
so that the canyon
between us
can be a dumping ground
for the perfect
little daydreams you’re
starting to have
about me—
and I’ll never have to ask you
to explain yourself
if I invent every word
you ever say.
