liberated from me you shan’t free yourself of me
while you’re in me I’ll keep repeating you

it is enough to notice it for it to take possession. And it pays
by remaining
in the inadvertent host

complementary exchange:
a tree within us and us within the tree
entrusted to endure
multiplied leaf by leaves

and divided by the word
and separated by the flesh
we find ‘it’
in what eyes perceive

no distance will keep us distant while
you’re inside me

at the point the place
where I shan’t find you

there in the final scattering
divisible multipliant
I shall be whole
