"Too Close" (by Joe DiMino)

There is no reasoning
With love and hate
Not supporting;

Facts only please!

Right and wrong
Not the same
To science—compounds
And their processes
Workable lies;

Where as
The pros and cons
Of love and hate
Our romantic fiction
Less than always
A physical presence
Yet, by far
A closer touch
When speaking of
Feeling reality….

Near fact
Can get us to Mars,
But never really
Tells us why—
That distance
Is the impetus
For all seeking,
And too close
The prime
