Gap

This world is a rocky shore

Endless and unending

Upon each rock

Stands a person

Some of our rocks are grouped together

You’re on your rock, and I’m on mine

There is nothing that would ever let me hop onto yours

So that I could see exactly how you see the world from your perch

So we stay on our rocks

And look at the sunset

And everything in creation

And what every body else does

each with a different pair of eyes

from differing places in the world

Unable to fully understand another’s point of view.
