REMOTE RELATIONSHIPS: “SHARED AND SEPARATE EROTIC”

REMOTE RELATIONSHIPS: SHARED AND SEPARATE EROTIC

     
 Living in these vast countries – the United States, Canada and Russia – we all have experienced telephone love affairs, or writing letters from too remote places 4,000 miles apart.
               Sometimes you and your love are living in the same city – but circumstances and/or psychological realities keep us apart.

        As a doctor once crossed a 4-lane street to
inform my friend and I :
              “Two manic-depressives should never
live in the same house!”

        OK… remote relationships: intimate yet distant… together yet alone.

        This is the situation the following poem describes.
         All of it is in the poem, but I find sometimes — I can’t stop talking.
         Other times I won’t say a thing.
                        


shared and separate erotic


Wistfully staring at the
        hot sunlight of stars
Across the arid hot desert;

Aroused, yearning
        wind tickling fine hairs
On your dry naked body
We are intimate and
        tender
Against the icy clarity
      of sky.

Snow-capped mountains
So close and distant
The Pleiades a cold
        delight.

Together alone
Intimate apart
Vast distances stroke
Our near and naked
        thighs.
