Alone with you — by Joanie Kercheval

on your couch

as we both inch closer to this fire
and stare ahead at the tv

We sit a foot apart
on your couch
electrified
as we limply resist magnetic fate
and stare down at our feet

We sit a half inch apart
on your couch
intensified
with fingers and hearts a confused twine
and stare ahead at the tv
