smallest
plea.


we have agreed upon
words

i can not speak to you
with these agreements, my friend.

instead, here.

i have two hands, they 
are empty. 


       held together, 
they are
a cup. 
           let me drink     from this space
           you will drink   from this space

       held apart, 
they
are again
    empty


        fill them
         , please.

take one in each,
the space trapped
between yours
and mine 
             has more
more meaning than
those agreements.
