in code

the language
between us

is sometimes
thick, murky

travel through it
is slow, uncertain

messages come
to us seeking

and we are

or we do not
yet have the means
the space
to read

but it is there
this common language
between us

and we jump in
splash about
wade through

never quite
meeting each other
in the din

satisfied enough
dwelling together
in the mystery.
