Intimacy Open Wide

By, Mark Kroytor


My sweet family friend,

I know who you are

As you transmute into different names and voices and branches and twigs,

You’ll be my greatest adversary,

Like a parasite needs a host,

We share a common face

So whenever you feel at home is the four walls within my own,

Arms spread in openness; inviting in their warmth

A range of trees, castor and palm, birds and bees, a slamming tide

At the touch of a finger

We’re as common as everything

Trickling into one

We’ve never met before

But I can see just who you are.
