Between two selves

Jennifer Guyor-Jowett

The first time I held my sons

o in
march
e five years later

the multitudes of the world

the cacophoning
sounds
the echoing
answers

reduced themselves to
just

the sanctuary
of

    two

an entire world

between us

every molecule and
atom

every heartbeat
drum-thrumming

  every solitary
  thread

of our
existence

held
together

  between two
  Selves.
