the heat whips the trees
shade pants crisply beneath leaves
not much chance of change

a sharp demarcation
between me and you

as if a copula
is enough of a word
to engender a metaphor

this is not this
but yet it is

grammatically independent
but phonologically dependent
on another word

my meaning depends
upon you
