syncretic intussusception

A hand against a slender arch of back
a curve undescribed

its radius of a calculus as eventful
in theory as in application

still despite our finest efforts
we remain unconvinced

of our beauty
our strength

so we do what we must
must do what we must

we reach for one another
down distances like interstellar highways

and there in the space between
what is known and

what is thought
hope lies waiting
