physics (April 3)

between what makes you, you
and what makes me, me
is the space that makes us, us.

science says we can never touch.
atoms and molecules
cultivate narrow alleys,
breaths between each other,
air to fill their lungs
lest they smother
and collapse
in a gravelly pile of gravity.

the ravines of void
hewn between you and me
seem not to protest at all
when your hand meets mine;
there is much more to touching
than the matter of mass
and its form.
