Tangent, Poetry by Rebekah Mambiar

Genre: Love, Melancholy

“Tangent” by Rebekah Mambiar

She walks across the lawn
just as he steps out of it.
She enters the classroom
just as he was leaving it.

He sees her stand up and leave
just as he reaches the table.
One moment, he says hi to her
but then she says bye soon after.

Then their eyes meet for a fraction-second,
they both smile for a brief moment.
And then she walks on, alone,
and so does he with his own crowd.

They are two realms apart,
two figures on different surfaces,
never meeting save for an instance—
a tangent amidst the vast stretch of planes.
