strength and honor

poise above the sweep your biceps.

you are warm rain

falling through the fog,

a moment,

of subliming snow.



you eased my fear

of heights and love,

like a luscious lather

formed to the shape of your hands,

the effervescence absconding

in a chimera iridescence.


softening to your touch,

beads trailing the loose strands,

i traced the lines of your face

in the dark.
