Poem 20160414

an inverse
relationship–
as the space
between us two
has increased
we become less
less like friends, less like ourselves

a direct
relationship–
as the time
has decreased
of all our
conversations
the words themselves grow shorter

like a bird
it’s an event
when you move
my aim falters
you take flight
you disappear
and my field of view empties

——

the secret keeper
