Newton’s Third Law (#18 Na/GloPoWriMo)


Loss, grief, absence embodies in
Newton’s third law:
For every action,
There is an equal
And opposite reaction.

A fish and water
Pressing against each other.
One object
Another environment.


Your lean against my leg.
My leg against your lean
Your stare countered by mine.
Your end of the leash,
My end jogging.
The day the needle slipped into your vein
As if a puncture into my own heart.
The day you galloped on your side into the void.
You a black hole.
My tenuous hold on the now.
