Being
different
together

 

you

call

me          tree

and

I

call

you          human

  

I like

that you          are

         different

from me

we have

         names

for

each other

and yet

we hardly know

each other

  

I like that you are

different from me

  

we

need one another

and          yet

 

we

let each other down

         I like

that you

are different

from me

 

I want to be

there for you

and yet          we move

apart

I like that you          are

different from me

 

who are we

without each other?

 

a woman

and a tree?

 

or maybe

nothing?

 

in any case

not you and me.
