Enough to say



About the distance
to Paris, Saskatoon, Seoul &
Tokyo, whatever else,
it is enough to say it's far.

And the distance between
my love and me measured by
snowstorms and oil massages,
it is enough to say we're near.

We cannot see beyond
these worlds, pixels,
resolving
on flat white screens.
And because of our love
we have no other thought
than to sip this white wine.
