Surely the Textbook Writers Don't Know Everything

October 25, 2011
I read somewhere, once
That no matter how close two objects are
To each other
There is still space between them.
It was beautiful, you know.
The way your hand
Perfectly enclosed mine.
I could think of
Nothing else.
Close the space.
And I did.
I heard the planets crash together
I felt the stars swirl in my palm
And the satellites slide beneath our fingertips.
I held on until I was sure
Nothing could come between us
And I thought to myself
That I should find that fact I read
And change it.
If you wish to close the space,
You will.

I am so touched by this.  It is so personable and tells the story with perfect pairs of words.
