I Wish

If
In the beginning, there was the word,
the word was wholly inadequate.
It’s as if the word is only
the impetus for creation
a spark
without its own combustables

So then
Actions must be the consequent
to the antecedent
of the word.
In love, the word heard
can be compelling
but the action of feeling…
There is something transformative
in the physical touch
and movement
the connection

Perhaps
the connection
is the pinnacle of existence
transcending creation
action complete
it lay suspended
in its own space
fertile
expectant

I wish
in that fertile space
the barriers of skin
muscle
voice
would disappear
leaving emotion exposed
connection complete
shared truly
for the first time
as one
