How curious, says he one day
while sitting on the couch,
how life can be full in the head
with its to-dos and its bills,
it’s difficult conversations
and its 2pm dates. And yet, says he
while lying on that couch,
how down in the chest
it can be empty and spacious,
a chamber for love.
How curious, says he,
while standing up,
that what seems empty
is also complete with fullness.
