Look Up

I can’t figure out why
it all matters anyway:
People’s perceptions.
Because in the end,
it doesn’t.

I know two people can just
look up and see the same sky
at the same time, together–
and, that is intimate.
They can look into
each other’s eyes, yes.

But, is it not
more scarce,
unimaginable even,
for two people to look up, together,
and truly see a world that is
comfortingly familiar to their own?
