We Move Together

We Move Together

we move together
an amorphous mass
a buzzing body
breathing in steps
gained with each exam
each building,
each lab
we spill all over campus
cram in lecture halls,
cafeterias, our
bedrooms, we listen
to the same profs
we toil alone
avoid each other’s eyes
trace our steps
sweat the anxiety on tread mills
imagine beautiful shapes
of where we would like to go
not realizing we are there already.

— by Svetlana Lilova, written in “The Courage to Connect”.
