Are you lonesome tonight

and do you curl up on your side
the same way I do?
Know then that I am made
for you,

two apostrophes
to become quotation marks
telling our stories

two apron strings
hastily tied
so we are ready when we make a mess

two heads bowed
foreheads pressed
when we ask for grace

two mouthes
meeting once, twice
learning to share breath

Two persons
becoming one someday,
but for now

one head
on one pillow
dreaming about
them both.
