RELATIVE TERMS
(11/27/17)

we communicate
infrequently
from a distance

usually via
emails

texts

posts

we share
certain
DNA

but other
than that
we are little
better
than acquaintances

however
every once
in awhile
we sync
our thoughts

our responses

showing
that we know
each other
a bit more than
socioelectronically

an undercurrent
of commonality
exists even
in separation

linked forever
by unseen
ancestral signals

the foundation
of our faces
genetically
mirrored

even though
they grow
older

quite
apart
