I’m here
looking for the company of trees
to feel nurtured

or veiled dedication
on your lips

My brain?
Some connection
that turns get, give, and leave
into wants, more, and please

Your brain?
“Wired so differently from mine”
your words, not mine

The shared pieces
we’re both looking
and always coming back
for one more moment
In the moment
