on ambivalence

the two pulls

impulses if you will

one for perspective

distance of a kind

to better understand

see things clearly

& the other

to be up close

in tight all the way

intimacy is such a dirty word

& to hold these

simultaneously

fighting each other

to be there deep in the trenches

& just not there

wanting

to be in my lofty wooden tower

watching

waiting to understand
