Poetry Friday: Debt


You and I, we keep moving through space and time,
arms and legs swooshing in the fourth dimension,
eyes blinking and lips stretching and pursing.

Lights flash in our heads and stars scatter thoughts
to our nerves, our hands, our bones, our blood.

Someday our eyes will see each other’s eyes,
and all this space and time will be accounted for,
the debt paid with treasure clattering to the floor
from holes in our pockets.
