the joining

 

your near total disinterest in all things   sweetie

out of doors   beyond these walls   of nature

of nature itself   as if it were a blind alley

you might pass unnoticed on an evening's walk

in your beloved new york city

 

all of which contrasts so starkly with me

 

enchants and allures   and I wonder why

if it is in spite of this   or because of this

we are of one mind in ways and ways and ways

 

though my wonder lies not so much

in the why of it   as in its certainty   its fact

its existence   its communion   i wonder at oneness

within and beyond these walls   wonder

as our separate beings relinquish self for one
