Mandolyn ...


if the sun blows up, come find me


the temperature rises
around me, like the soul of Summer
that swings from tree to tree-
a quiet forest
you kept tucked inside your palm
until i peeked
and swooned like it was 1893-

you handed me a fire,
i blew the flame to watch it dance
felt the glow of your eyes
following me in every room-

sackcloth dreams, i wrapped around me
a hundred miles or more
towards piney paths and pastures
i touch with made up memory-

now peaches fall to the ground
and are picked up
by your sturdy, hustling hands
i ache to grasp
and hold for hours-

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
