Two seemingly

Unrelated things

Until thought about

Pulled apart

Compared and

Written about

The traits of each

Labeled with words

Inadequate at best

But what we have

To work with

Symbols do the rest

Mathematics untie

The smaller parts

Open the watch back

Expose the innards

But it is more

Than that

Something on the

Back end

Pushing all this

Curiosity exploration


Need to know

All emotions

With direction arrows

Pointing out

From their surfaces

I want to go there

I need to go here

To find out

What’s there

What makes up

All of it

Whatever that is

Sort of what

I do

In therapy
