Arm’s Length

images

 

Eternal interloper in lives of known trajectory,

Peripheral, intangible

 

Far-edged voyeur of friendship’s face,

Inclining then retreating

 

Meagre home in worlds of others,

Families conjured by their own suns

 

Each space a restless pause; not yet arrived,

Visitor from unknown home

 

Travelling beside yet never with you,

Universal passenger

 

Fearfully incessant voice,

Arm’s length from everywhere

 

That place of jostling stillness,

Place of dense emptiness
