Summer Ellison

A world breaks if two people live in it

God plays a fog bird. In context
of lovers an echo is the closest definition.

The canyon scar spreads toward nothing. A figure
at one end, a shadow at the other.

God takes two bodies and knocks them together: Earth.
Of course it is uneven, the heft of it.

By Heisenberg’s principle, one is not the loneliest number.
God is the sum of two observations.
