// Space Between //

I welcome you reluctantly.
As we begin
I’m searching your eyes for the end

inside the intimacy of a single moment
one held apart from all the rest,
in the sudden clutch of fevered breath, you approach

my thoughts like a pale moonbreast,

beating steady, penetrating

quietly illuminating
my mercurial flesh.
Slow spread legs, wings bending low on a bluelagoon ledge
a string of evening windows, each a-glow.

Your mood alights upon my chest
the ache of desire is laid to rest
amid the currents on the breeze;
I carved our coordinates into the trees

but the nightwind sang with a stomach choked of sorrow
my love, my love, my love,

a ghost,
already left.
