I put distance between us
When I pave the road my feet walk upon
and box myself into a mobile space

I put distance between us
With my words – ‘spirit‘ – that is something
Other
than this clay case that heaves and breathes

I put distance between us
In my climate controlled square that stops wind from breathing WITH
When no breaks or twists from rushing deer or limb contort
My body, now morphed in its chair before my electric box

I put distance between us
in my mind…for I am ME and you are THEY
or IT
and all THOSE out THERE are put beneath
