There are people who keep you at Arms length
as if their own gravitational pull can be overridden
with a wave or poor eye contact
It rarely works for me.

Others draw you in and spin you around
so many circles:
circle of friends, circle of apartments
an intimate orbit of perfume and music,
I always remember their faces under a lamp or bathed in sunlight

Lovers do not cross paths,
they move in circles
sometimes overlapping, sometimes polar opposites.

bumping into each other's moons and stars
