We Inter-Are/458

by Mark Chmiel

1.

Mev was inside of me
And so I wrote a book

And Miriam read the book
And Mev was inside of her

And when Miriam was with Johnny
Mev ended up inside of him

Johnny paid attention to Miriam
Miriam was inside of him

Johnny wrote Miriam a love letter
He was inside of Miriam

This kind of thing cannot be controlled
No CIA could interfere with it

This goes to that which goes
To this which goes to that

2.

Wendy was born in Taiwan
A wise student of mine eight years ago

She read my book while in Cameroon
Mev ended up inside of her

Now Wendy’s in Shanghai
And she’s inside of me

Thoughts, words, actions circulate
We inter-cultivate

I’ll pause here
Knowing that this scribble

Could be ten thousand times
Ten thousand lines

Because this goes to that which goes
To this which goes to that
