instead of

instead of
passing each other by,
let us, suppose us, instead
say hello.
from your hello i will begin to love. from this
i will find voice. i will speak. i will say
such a warm wind blowing,
don't you love it
dries our salty sweat.
speaking, you will see, i will find
everything, breathing and brand new. i will know.
myself. i will know. you. to give.
to myself and of myself. 
give and give and give
until there is no more. 
and then i will
begin again
say, simply, hello.
