Kin

love birds#5 (3)

Shall we go back to the basics
of being human,
you and I.

First: shelter, food, fire.
Next comes touch and smell,
imprint of our human-ness.
We fold our skin over our beloveds,
a cloud of prayer above our heads,
leaning into each other, though far apart.

We are kin, skin to skin,
though far apart.
