I stir the pot of relationship
at a slow speed at first
not wanting to cause further damage
when I stop
I can still see the layers
that keep separated
the parts of the whole.
And I realize
there is more to blending
then gently stirring things up.
Not understanding fully
the chemistry of relationships
I apply the mixer at a higher speed
wanting to bring things together
into a silky smooth batter, and find
the stirring only conceals the problems
by hiding them in the whole
spoiling the untainted.
