“Sharing things is how things get started and not sharing things is how they end.”
We converse as if we were
Interesting and might convert
Into something rich and strange.
And then we do, but we don’t know
That we did or what we did.
We’re just much more richly strange.
But we’re not more interesting,
At least not to each other.
Now we don’t want to converse.
We see each other as weird—
Weird and inexplicable,
As well as boring. What was
It we saw in each other?
It’s not just us. This happens
Over and over again.
When we transform, we vanish,
All of us gods shedding shells,
Trying to become ourselves.
