I have so much of you in me

your atoms mingled with my atoms

cells sitting next to cells

swimming in the water between like guppies

so much air we breathe together

eyes, nose, fingers — all the air between us

the energy that stays, with me, in my memory cells

the cells in my fingernails and hair

blood and toes

all the energy that moves and stays still

the you that stays with me when you walk away

to your car

driving

away in oakland at night
