Balanced delicately
between two forces
Your world
My world

My step — solid firm
but noncommunicative
Your step — solid reaffirming
but noncommitted

We dance
full of language
but incomprehensible

I can’t read your mind
You can’t hear me
I can’t read your face
You can’t see me
I can’t read you
You don’t know me

Your smile
My look
Your look
My smile

I can’t have you here
You don’t know me there
You can’t have me here
I don’t know you there

Forward Backward
Backward Forward
Seemingly symmetrical
Into me
Into you
