Closure
Motion me in. I could
float out forever without
a reminder. Emotion
is the quotient of loneliness
divided by distance,
with a remainder
too small to count
or broker. Proffer
a valid gesture: a rope around
my waist, looped into
the world's rotation. It's still
no solution, when two thirds
is ocean.
