Closedness


by P.R. Mercado


We are
    packed in a speck of dust
    adrift across the universe,
    revolving an ember. 

    He and I
    together on either ends
    of a grain of sand.

    We cannot be any closer than this. 

    I suppose as long as here and there exist

    In all its vacancy it is impenetrable.
