This ampersand
is a knitted stitch
&&&&&&&&&&&
holds us together.
Mr & Mrs or A & F
always & forever.

A special character
a code “& amp”
the last letter per se
a link in the chain.

Dangly earrings
&&
crocodile tears,
the hooks where
we hang our hats.

A sitting lotus
it curls half twisted
and gathers us in

drop it
&
we’ll unravel

go our separate ways

no you & me
together
h& in h&.
