NaPoWriMo - 2017 - April 26th - Space

I remembered the prompt I meant to follow yesterday...



Space

Between my two raised hands
I show just how much width
the coffee table takes
and that is space

not a huge amount of it
something approaching three foot six
but the same stuff
that separates us from the Moon.


You're on the far side
of the coffee table now;
no matter how I manoeuvre
I cannot bring you close...

...you say you need more space;
beyond you is the window,
kites flying in the park,
and beyond that, the Sun.
