Ars Libera, Kuopio, Finland, 2019

"I cannot go with you,"
you said.

Had I once stood
where you are as you read this,
your experience 
would not be mine,
and my pain
would not have been yours.

And even if
I were to stand 
by your side right now,
the same particle of light
would never touch us both.

There is no lexicon to navigate by.
"I cannot go with you,"
I said.
