Poetic Break

[Michael (5th July, 18:11)]:

Not
men and women,
But
the folding
of the clearing itself.
Standing, facing beings
knowingly
in the open
Or
touching one another,
ununderstandingly,
scarcely,
in the crease between.

[Radhika (5th July, 21:35)]:

can we communicate
not appropriating
colonizing

each others'
meanings?

talk of possibilities ...

perhaps

(but we were never
tabula rasa, says a voice from within ...
the voice that knows that tabula rasa are a point
of view
from where you stand
I may seem
empty
from where
I stand
I am
not)
