between

There is a line
between
connection and intrusion
and it is a barbed wire fence
That says to most organisms
"Keep out" and "Don't press there"

But to seeds carried on the wind
"Come over as you will
and let the sister of what is growing in that heart
begin
to take root in mine"

And to the right kind of animal,
agile and careful,
"Slip through."
