Footsteps

How do I know where
you went away to that day?
But I imagine

a very thin line
between adjacent spaces –
We can almost touch.

Maybe we could walk
perpendicular pathways
and swap philosophies?

Our respective footsteps
on the dusty paths, a sign
We shared a little time.

Then, dressed in sparkles
perhaps you’ll up and choose to
smile and dance away?

  1. “a very thin line

    A lovely, intriguing concept. Got me thinking of China Mieville’s “The City and The City”.
    A great book about places that are almost adjacent….sort of….
