Out here I feel more helpless
with you than without you
You mention the danger
and list the equipment
we talk of people caring for each other
in emergencies – laceration, thirst –
but you look at me like an emergency

– Few things ring as right and true as Adrienne Rich’s inimitable ‘Trying to talk with a man’
