The Two of Us

like death
the two of us
you and me
in the empty room

beyond the empty room
the removal of dead flowers
the quietening footsteps
and the distancing of our tomorrows

beyond understanding
within the very web of life
the rising of the veil
and the overlap of our eternities

beyond imagination
in the comet-lit electric shock
of the star spangled universe
we restructure our heavens

and like death
there's always
the two of us -
you and me
