“… within the thousand lights of each other.”

by Matters of Inquiry

See now, where you are.
Every place, every moment. Here—
just here.

A voice broke the sky between
you and me, illuminating two sparks—
one expanse.

This is a conversation I would like to have

walking into the distance, where the glitter of
the sky crushes into the lights
of the ocean,

here—just here
within the thousand lights
of each other.
