North and south

From the other side of the world
I called out in pain
but you could not hear me

I traveled far
catcing a glimpse of you
over the tropic of capricorn

What more could I do
with my palsied hands
and you unwilling to cross
the prime meridian
even for
your
continental girl

We remained at opposite poles
politically
emotionally
infuriatingly terrifyingly
illogically
tragically

lost
