set diagram

  
The set diagram shows
all possible 
logical relations
between
 a finite collection 
of different sets. 

When we met

when our lips touched

and minds conversed

and our hearts began to jitter-bug
logic had little to do with 
the thrill of discovering like-emotions 
and the joy of fitting 
just so 

His set so distinct
from mine:
Brooklyn tough, irreverent to my
East-Tennessee, quiet comfort. 

Now, my set is still Laurie Lynn–
I’m re-collecting who I am
on my own. 
While his set is infinite
and 
that tiny space we share
now
is 
an absence. 
An empty set.
