she kisses me holds my face in her hands
says our duty is to love
with all of our being focused on the beloved 
einstein’s “very interesting conclusion”
coupling time and space
in prayer our bodies a single destiny i.e. entity i.e. 
we were never meant to be lonely
we were meant to be
fully known a stem of timothy
in the city a conundrum
of prayer

death so when i say i love you i die 
and when you say you love me i live 

                                                                 — for Li-Young Lee
