Crown Shyness

The space between trees that don’t touch

It’s between you and me-  Boxer and Coach

Crowd and Fighter

That walk- an endless hallway in a horror flick

All that space…………to wander off

It’s too long-  time to think and listen to the murmuring dysfunction that drink and expected violence elicit –  Walking through them and me-

I head up each sysiphean  step through the space in between the ropes that will contain me and you

I breath and the clenching grip lets loose, preparing me for your touch.

We are called to the center to close the chasm – now a 3 in a square on stage for all to see

The bell rings and we follow it’s resonance to contact
