So many ways not to be here:

text me, phone me, send me a selfie,

appear in my room (over Zoom).

Is your hand cold? What shows

in your eyes? Do you quiver or glow,

are we one, or two?

I want to feel that stillness fall

when you enter the room,

the waft of you rich with vibrations –

myriad signs that being together

is sharing space, content inside

each others’ aura, the palpable presence

of Presence.

Together is being here,

anything less, a cold footprint.
