Dialogue

Naked

strip away everything
the titles
the degrees
ambitions
and success
as we've been taught

to save
or not

till nothing
but
yourself
and 
me
and 
the others
just us
people 

grounded in something that exists
beyond ourselves
within ourselves

flesh 
and
bone 
and 
noise
and 
silence
in 
dialogue
to
create
or destroy

yet
here we are

assuming 
the world
assuming
the 
center
of 
all is the world
twirling about 
us

yet
instead
we are the nothing in everything
everything in nothing
and 
the lasting ripple
the 
last

the
last
is 
love
