Necessity
It is hard to know what to say,
since we have been together so long

and seem unable to speak over
our history of words.

It is hard (you understand?)
to feel the pressure of sound

but to desire the gesture
of fingers touching lips

to feel a need for words
when it is not enough to speak.
