Chimamanda

Released
Each other’s
Hands
Slowly
Not sure
How long
(Longingly?)
Our fingers should be
Touching
Or whether they should have been touching
In the first place.
In your handshake. (your eyes, your smile,
look at me deep from within)

Not much to a touch.
But should we feel something
Through that?
And something?

*A cup of tea/Apple products/$75
(whatever comes to mind)
Microsoft/medicine/literature/
Simple English language*
Now.

And if we felt it
Could we share it?
Would it be
Liberty.
Mutual.

My eyes ask.
Plead? Never.
If you’re up on your feet
Is that close enough?
Plenty?

You haven’t decided
Will you?

Here. Remain.
A character in my new fiction book.
Nonsense. Did you want more?

Around
An arm around

I’m sleep though.
Flight’s delayed.
You’ll be out
Of sight and mind
And heart
And if not yours,
Then mine.
Thanks!
