I’m a foot away From you
And in the silence That floats up between The clouds that rest On the forest floor I hear your voice Whisper
The ground shifts beneath me Sending loose thoughts Rattling down the crevasse
Thoughts of you Your face a foot from mine Then inches Close enough to smell The sweet fresh air Of your breath
One step A foot away I know you’re there But if you aren’t...
One foot One step back Farther from the gorge Farther from your face I was so close
12” A foot The measure of Infinity
