2006-12-29 Finale Poem

Folder: 
2002-2004 Muse

 

I sit and think what it would be like
To be next to you again.
I can feel my body twirling
Lifted from its seat
Levitated in a spiral
A ballerina's pirrouet
A skater's spiral
Arms lifted in joy
Undulating in the vortex
    of you.

 

I wonder
What your next victim feels

Now.

 

I lay and think what it would be like
to have you prone beside me.
No rest or peace for you,
A quivering repose,
Arrow taut to go

 

I couldn't keep you.
Will she?
