It's All of Us


To know this the way I know

we can make music together

when separate,

to know this palpable presence

in the emptiness of silent rooms

& then embrace it for what it is,

and to know it isn’t just the singular you

but the plural when I consider

your survival is ours,

is to know I have not arrived

on this great big spinning rock


and neither have you.
