Arm’s Length



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
