And Never Collide
All day long and all night long we have been arguing.
Which is to say, we have each found a good argument
to carry about the house. We're not willing to share.
Mine, at least, is far too beautiful to lose.
Also, it is heavy, but I can't put it down where
I might trip over it. I'm not willing to take that risk.
All day long and all night long we have been swimming
along the dark banks of this river. It is astonishing
how those small fish that carry light into the shadows
turn together, and turn together again, and never collide.
