darkness and the tableau

Hyacinth garden

darkness and the tableau

principle montage

compose in essential constellations


      like this, from inside

  invisibly practice longing

set foot in my poems lie on your back

words whisper in your ear

listen closely and need them all.

tying and untying

     ropes knotted

multiply heightened


in you tonight,

     tooth edges feel the

gorgeous generous branching of veins.

swallow me whole

while I  ride

the throaty thrill—

fierce and sudden:


and wet.
