Do We Need Holes?
You need presence of mind
to mind the present

or prescience of mind
to mime the present

holes define the net.

Is space the same as holes
without a net?

Six feet of space between
between you and me

holes within each one: mouth    nostrils     eyes
who knew speaking one-to-one

spreads more than

names precede verbs

I think we're alone now
if you sit on one edge

of the bench          I on the other
with only our names       no-speech

looking at each other
we might          survive
