Various and Sundry Poetry

the line between here and there

Edge of driveway, edge of road, edge of words and love letters and possible outcomes. Edge of wine, edge of chocolate, edge of spoon balancing on coffee cup. Edge of a dollar bill, of pennies in a pocket. Edge of napkin on edge of mouth. Edge of sweet and bitter. Edge of a keystroke. Edge of a kiss. Edge of evening and candle wax and pen against paper. Edge of hope. Edge of reason. Edge of mystery and secret. Edge of childhood and old age. Edge of time and not enough time. Edge of patience. Edge of sex. Edge of silence and truth and what next. Edge edge edge. The line between here and there, always. Turning one corner and another and another.
