undo belong, underneath, about

to transfer means to give
or, proximity enough so that something of you
reaches something of me

to disconnect implies a base? what precedes

a searching for, a circling back, a foot tapping restless, afar, a far too much, a trespassing, a being lost, a whisper, a practice…of staying outside, a rending, a rendering, reaching towards, a joyous shout, a spilling over, an open hands waiting, a crossing, a passing, a holding, a holding, a holding, a hold,, a crossing, a being, lost.
