A tension, an air with mass. Addictive in it’s foreboding power. It’s always held a place of distance and desire. It’s the space between the two middle school bodies, the declared space for jesus. It’s the two stiff arms jutting from shoulders to hands floating sweatily over a hip. It’s the gap between two sneakers swaying back and forth yet still in place. It’s one mouth parting to make room for the other. It’s the other still shut. Taut so it never leaves room to collapse.
