Were I to classify
You and me as phenomenae
what would we be?
A tempestuous sea
A growing tree
A twisting swirling galaxy
A gust of wind blowing
tall reeds of grass
a raging fire burning fast
The scent of wildflowers
The miracle of life
an extinction event
extraterrestrial fish
in hydrothermal vents
a starry sky
a tear
a brief but potent love
a strong, enduring fear
why classify what
we have right now,
is right here
what a waste of time
my dear
to analyze
For life is hardly multiple choice
my love
And I feel
in your voice, now
all of the above
