We were never parallel.

The initial attraction despite
our different modes of being
too strong for either one
of us to walk away from.

Our azimuths differed
by just a few degrees
that stayed the same on paper
as they widened with time.

The nest emptied out
and exposed a wide gulf
but not before its occupants
cemented a kind of
quantum entanglement
between  their parents.

Now we dance that arrhythmic
Quantum Entango you see people
doing as their parties wind down
maintaining what Einstein called
spooky action at a distance while
still living under one roof.
