Just A Touch

Across the hallway
Inside the wall
You repeat the defeat
Of belief in the system
Of being
Of loving
Of knowing
Everything and finding
Nothing

You talk to me through
Wall and stone
Through my television
Radio and computer
I hear your call
And warn you
To prevent
Fire

Across the way
Outside the door
Inside the chasm
Of untouchables
You reside
With me
Inside of time
That ticks its precipice
Out of time

And relentlessly
We wake to breathe
