Why Continents Collide.

Our bodies are two continents severed by time

moving slowly towards each other;

the oceans between us sinking, the trenches

getting deeper. The landscape of our skin

shudders with this approaching.

Mountains forge and veins converge

like rivers charting a new course.

A current runs through the rough

churning out relics, insignias of distinction

blur – even a catastrophe is beautiful.

It will be long after dusk and dawn 

cast their uneven light , a new continent forms

a million years it maybe, to discern how

we fit like a jigsaw puzzle – this longing.
