Two

Oh, Sugar
I wish I didn't know what it's like
to love two at a time

To love the vowed and the dislocated
longing across distances
gripping the messages
from that other world

Belonging everywhere
and nowhere at once

I wish I didn't know
the ache of wanting
something different for your children
than you need for yourself

I wish I knew the way to be two
