One marks their love with a string

One marks their love with a ruler

I hold the string between us and

the distance shrinks, I pull you in

I let you out

we adjust.

They, a ruler, stiff and

measuring the space between

like a success story of

look how big we are, look at

how far away we keep ourselves.

I pull you in, I pull you in.

They keep

themselves apart

with all

the stiffness

and

delusion

of space.
