riˈlāSHənˌSHip/

My ear hears this poorly.
My heartscar feels this in defense and guarded curiosity.

Dry, inflexible, mechanical (as in needing oil or lacking fluidity).

You and I surpass “concept” (though few concepts amuse me more)
We are in states of connectivity and division, rising and rooting
Dichotomies of gender weaving synchronous yet separate threads.
Lines on a map
heads at the same headboard
hands in the same lap
one body of water touching two shores.

“Re-lation-ship.”

Again – experience – moving
About – relatedness – vessel
This – common – embrace
