Front Row Seats — Gotts Island — 2017 — photograph by Ben Weinberg

we meet in passing glances
across the median
travelers on separate trajectories

we meet in touches
light as fingertips upon a sleeve

our love circles outward
like the chain of ripples
cast from a skipping stone

love, loss, grief, joy
all sprung from where hearts collide
the heavy elements
are forged at the point of impact
born in the hearts of dying stars
