Being close

our bodies recognised each other
before
our souls did

our souls recognised each other
before
our brains did

the latter being nothing
but amazed
spectators

ayer’s rock and danube delta
precision mechanics and leaf in the wind
geometry and coincidence
ant and shaman
formula-1 and deer path
man and woman

one defined by the other

only sometimes
the leaf seeks shelter from wind
in a clockwork
sometimes
the rock dissolves
and the waters hurry
to found it

it is then
that we are
closest
