Like water and oil do we swirl As my eyes close Your eyes open And again we dance fluidly Nearing And changing course The sun sets and you think of me The sun rises and I think of you But neither dare to shake the bottle once more
A counterpoint duet Looping and dipping Dripping and flipping Tossing and turning
Finally An emulsifier
I’ll never forget the time we stirred It was the moment we both said “Stop” At the very same time
But in the end it was all just an intellectual exercise We could never truly bond.
