evolution is just a theory

you and i were so much better
in theory than reality
what we have always
(and perhaps only)
loved in each other
was the tunnel between
warring nations,
the telephone wires
strung out like veins,
the escape route.
now that there’s nothing to flee
we no longer need
this palliative.
no more to learn,
unclench our fists,
time to let go.
gently. swiftly.
