Incomplete

This is ti-
me, it never caresses
us, it blazes our skin, burning
our bated breath, turning our
cheeks red;

This is a spa-
ce between you
me; it grows, like the roots of an
old banyan tree

that our children will swing on
one day;
long roots, strong roots, but
none bold enough to tie

time
and us
together.
