Space to Space

She grabs his hand
and the world spins
faster and faster
till they’ve lifted off
amateur astronauts
weightless for the first time

It’s like that till it isn’t
till gravity is imposed
and it’s all they can do
to keep each other standing
to pick the other up
when the weight is too much

Let them linger if you can
in that first space
where they don’t know
exactly what it is
when they’re free
to love without love

Wish weightlessness
and watch kindly
as they descend to earth
of their own accord
as they run towards another
and lift off once more
