baseline

love is the baseline /
we fall out of it from time to time

across the room
across the planet

fall out of love
one from the other

devolution of the world’s
store of sympathy

turns friend and stranger
to enemy

a piece of wire
twisted around the heart

that binds us both

my enemy’s freedom
is my own
