We were a hydra, monstrous, beautiful
And mundane in our everyday dependence
Wrapped within our blushing bluish skin
Face to face, body in body, endless
You pull the fabric of our skin combined
And slice those stitches which we made with care
Separate the segments of our minds
Rip pith and gossamer that held them there
Unmesh our breasts the years have knit together
Unclench our hands to force us far apart
And last and lasting, loss and losing, loving
Sever the arteries between our hearts.
