Shared awakeningIt's a sight I never see:
my other half shouldering dawn,
skin touching, pillow worn
Others do: for granted each one's he or she,
sharing breath, touching skin,
separate, yet more than kin:
Togetherness is key...
the daily norm, the tiny things;
the kitten's news, the shower sing...
I do not wake to see another's knee.
I'm the statistic;
There is no "we" for me.
