Preposition by Sally Van Doren

The before took us right up to
the after, even though under
meant we should not try over,
from being stronger than to,
up shying from its ascent
in the face of down. I held
on to you and beside you
I became with and about.
In our around, the near/far
could turn away and toward,
within the without. By my above
and your below, the wheres and
whens retreated, leaving time
and space stranded, in off, on out.
