spaces where dark things curl

within the sweet aroma of decay

where the ordinary becomes

leather stretched tight

a size too small 

and there are no halves 

in this place of yearning

for the unitive


the integrated woven

composite stone compressed 

marble and quartzite

jewels of wisdom 

where i am marbled

and the silicon slippers in your hands 

ring with crystal tones

notes that skip like stones

as you hum the tunes of my past

lulling them to sleep in your arms
