Connection between two friends
is like a string of Ariadne set loose
in a labyrinth – paths of man and telephone lines,
in a labyrinth – conversations, anger and laughter,
in a labyrinth – favourable, two-way communication.

People, tiny as a grain of salt
over a distance, as big as life itself
are trying to preserve that,
