what is embrace?

first: it is certainly not
“giving you a hug”
a mere social party trick
performed without regret.

embrace is not easy or cheap
it carries inevitable meaning
it is not vacant or empty
it is not just a greeting or a farewell
a hello or a goodbye

instead, a proposal:
embrace is a negation of space.
my space
your space
becomes our space, our-space, ourspace.

embrace is the experience of the other
mutual subjugation of identity
it is love, connection, unity
a sacrifice of selfness

embrace is a code, a symbol
intensified meaning
simultaneously two things:
opening and closure
externalization and internalization

but most of all
embrace is you and me
