First Contact

FIRST CONTACT

If I open to you
Will you hurt me?
Or will we two be discovering
Brand new kinds of play?

Are we destined
To be known as
That Astonishing Couple
Or will we act out Darwinian
Predator and Prey?

Will we be so overwhelmed
By the mechanics of being
That we miss each moment's role
As a step on the Way?

Or will our lucky lives be joined
By co-experienced wisdom?
By a pragmatic cosmology
Deeply felt but impossible to say?
