The Separation of Ocean Draining Watersheds

The table between us seemed too much.  
Never have I sat beside someone
at a restaurant. 

Those were the people
I used to make fun of.
Were they so much in love?

A table is too wide a distance,
greater than The Great Divide.

Nothing should separate us—
no mountains, no wood, 
no covenant.
