Alternative Universe Me

Alternative universe me,
Sister from another dimension
We lay ourselves upon the edge
In a forest where others rarely tread
Radio in tune
Sharing narratives like a bed
Reflected back it feels–
when I felt you up or was it you, me
sticky lips, unclothed, thrusting hips
–so real

Afterward we sat on the sofa
With cats, under the blanket
Snacking on sunflower seeds and gluten-free chips
Drinking ‘Fokken’ rooibos tea
Writing, reading, together
Distilling the essence of the particular, minutia
into something more whole
An aesthetic identity
Another type of poetry
Circling the stars
Not needing to explain
The words’ context jump full thought from brain to brain
