However convinced

This is how they loved:

harder to hit a moving target? harder to love a changing man.
The consequence of individualized progress is
shedding your lovable things
to be left where you were.
Your loved things, too.
This is how they loved:
loud in silence of consequence.
Screaming closed mouths and eyes.
A car horn blared
while their single red string
links two parallel hearts.

But in truth
their world is quiet and there is no knot.
Their shed skins remain convinced the other stayed.
