Our unsteady gravity

This city is a place of twos


east and west,


before and after


free and enslaved.


 


the past is gone but two stories still echo


an ancient foundation of divides and merges


becoming one unsteady whole.


 


can two ever become one?


Adam could never reclaim his rib,


even when deep inside her, still


she was separate


her heart always a rebellious beat


(like the moon she twisted and turned


but never truly left)


 


heaven and earth, god and man, body and soul,


we divide, dreaming of union 


of the sighs, the ecstasy, 


of dissolving into one. 


 


(Still i hold tight to the piece of me


you cannot touch, cannot fathom,


in love with this binary, our unsteady gravity)
