We, like water,
like water under a cloud sky,
so evenly lit, illuminate—
our flow,
our companionship immeasurable
pleasing intersections
we just as soon leave
but recall.

We, like water
like syphons of texture
like voiceless sea gulls
circling, seeking—
we, like water
like symphonies of directions,
flowing and meeting
mingling blood bound by bound.

We, like water
are fortunate—
blessed by gods and golden chemistry
to perform, as it is, as we do.

Our compassion is chosen
not lightly.
