tie a ribbon around my eyes

and ask me if I could still find you

in an endless crowd of people

smile when I say yes

because I am sure this chemistry

is tangible – soft and heavy in my hands

allowing me to feel my way toward you

no matter where we are –

a silk rope looped about our wrists

pulling us ever tighter, ever closer

even in a sea of unfamiliar faces

and blindfolded darkness
