Not in oneness


Your desire of me and mine of you
Are not alike.
My dream of you and yours of me
Are different.
I don’t want myself to be you and you
Don’t want yourself to be I
As long as we are separate
As man and woman in sex.
It is futile to think that we are one.
Conjugation is a temporary process
Of pleasure existing in two identities.
