Conversation between two hippos

I am told sometimes,
people are better loved from afar.
Proximity, I hear,
only evidences our frailty.

Yet, here I stand
across from you
craving closeness,
willing to love you

scars and all.

(Conversation between two hippos is originally the title of this display that has just opened at the MET.)
