Tell Me

how our stories cross

in a lattice weave,

the intimate places 

they leave open,

for sheaves to cascade

onto the parchment floor.


a paper door

painted with the traces,

of past lover’s faces,

a glass half spilled,

will be refilled,

by the soul’s world curled

and enfolded in

our melded skin,

birch leaves quivering

on the moaning wind.
