We walk at night my girl and I
and talk of life and love’s sweet ache,
beneath a silver dusted sky.
 

Half-summoned by the nightjar’s cry,
uncertain of which path to take,
we walk at night my girl and I,
 

unhook and take apart the lie,
unravel every dark mistake,
beneath a silver dusted sky.
 

Answers sought in every sigh,
curiosity’s thirst to slake,
we walk at night my girl and I,
 

discarding every alibi,
false promises we now forsake
beneath a silver dusted sky
 

Despite nocturnal lovers’ cry,
soft-sullen moon upon the lake,
we walk at night my girl and I
beneath a silver dusted sky.

It is here
in these quiet moments
that we find it;
 

when we have nailed
hurricanes to the floor
and collected monsoons
in thimbles,
 

as we lay,
chests heaving,
in the debris-strewn dust,
 

waiting
for a subtle shift,
a tender tremor
that will lift us to our feet
 

and have us leaning
into the wind, learning
to trust the breeze
once more.

Symmetry, Linguistics and the Art of Surrender

Daisy Chain 2
 

Relinquishing the day,
I watch your tongue
chase vowels, curl
 

around consonants, your
lips spilling daisy chains
on my bare shoulders.
 

I tilt my head, mirroring
your movements, inhale
the faint creases around
 

your mouth, allowing
myself to unravel as
you unfold in a smile.
