From "The global of Us":
Don't pass round all day
thinking approximately life—
doing so will elevate a barrier
between you and its instants.
You desire these instants
so you will be in them,
and i would like you to be in them with me
for i feel the area of us
and the mysterious barricades
that make it possible.
