The Union

The Union

 

You and I

Are different

See?

 

You are man

You are the spirit that ponders

The mountain

You are the body that wanders

There

You are the train that boards and passes

Collects their tickets

And their tithes

Who says with confidence and conviction,

“You may not cross”

This line.

I do not bear that cross

 

I am woman

I am the spirit that ponders

The man

I am the body that wanders

Here

I am the countryside that stays

Only subtle changes

Set in motion by the tracks

Of trains

Who questions before asking

“May I come with you?”

This time

 

Hoping perhaps

You and I

Are the same

You see?
