Listen to Elizabeth Arnold reading this poem. Just as planets move in relation to each other
through the dark,
the air between them
too thin to survive
yet tensed against their pulling,
or continents of night
joinable, if ever,
by frail tunnels disappearing into
multiplying folds of space;
so we move, rooms
or inches from each other as if hope of light were over.
