under the hottest sun
we crawled into each others'
the space we discovered inside each other was
entire cave systems built for two;
amphitheaters of us.
Everything else was there too, of course.
Outside, trees grew out of our openings,
mountains groaned and ached,
people worked and loved and also ached,
there were weddings
but I can't remember them.
Only you, and the hottest sun
staring at us
through the cracks of our cave.
