I SO LAY SHUN                                                  (Love beyond physical distancing    04-06-2020)

 

Do I still

Remember

How to shake hands?

 

Has that crocked veil

Bent my arms

Skewards

From shoulders to fingers?

 

Will that

Peaceful ambience

Of my once

 Unfortunately Transient,

Hospitality,

Disappear

Like the

Shifting shadows

On that awesome

Zero shadow day?

 

And will you then

Shun me

When I come towards you

Like the huge hugs of

A holy beer?

 

Well,

If time and space

Could be separated

And so spaced,

One kept,

 North Pole

The other kept,

 South Pole…

 

Or maybe even,

Both separated

By the inconsequential

Distance between

The thoughts and speeches

Of a perfect human brain,

 

Then memories

And warm feelings

Like humble handshakes

Could then be lost,

Missing in times

Amounting to decades

Or even split seconds.

 

However,

That space

In this case

Facing facts

Is not even,

Existential

Let alone

Tangible

In this once,

Cuddling cradle.
