vvvvvYours is the shape of things to come you said

I will over time grow more in tune with your outline

and like hands shadowed against flame

we will rise and consume

in equal pour

as the wine staining your lips

makes you thirst for contrast

so our limbs struck out of sheets

could be the legs of girls sleeping in first sun

careless of the world yet

a sway about their joins

as if dance inhabits those yet accustomed

to brittleness

we are softened by unison

first emotions spilt longer to absorb in substance

earning capture, all time will retain the way

you curl me around your curve

a language bespoke in whisper

like limber wood smoothed for bow

crossing oceans in green willows

your resistance emptying as

hands that have not known holding

shall capture each other in briny shell

diving beneath one another as swimmers

seeking pearls

your obsidian hair like a fan on white sand

directing day forward like sundial

as you seek my reserves with the

lingering strength of a swimmer

slender outlines shaded against light

spilling on fermented floor

such small places to draw wonder from

unfurled from discovered maze

the color of love rinsing through your eyes

like doves filling skies in confetti

momentarily forgetful we are mortal

a divinity of capture

glimpsing heaven through

half-open eyes

  1. LOVE again! You’re really determined to turn me into a wild child today. More like I’m determined actually since you’re merely writing your words and have no design (ha!) apart from that.
    I’ve found most people don’t know the difference between sexy and vulgar. Well, I shall send them here and to your delicate wording yet flaming images. Though you could still be sexy while being vulgar, and not many people can pull that off.
    (I’ve had a couple of glasses of wine while watching the #Inauguration, forgive me)

  2. ha ha ha can’t blame you for the wine totally there! I think vulgar has a place too (Bukowski) but yeah, if it’s sexy we are trying for, then it’s rarely
    totally vulgar well … I dunno actually maybe it can be? mmm good question
