Poem 20160205

these steps between us
might as well be nautical miles

too many to measure

if we were to each hold an end
of a measuring tape
every wave would stretch the
tape between us to breaking

the distance explodes

they say that every piece
of the universe races away
at an increasing rate
from every other piece

just so
