Heat of Vaporization

gathers at the waist

a basting tape

holding seams in place

as i follow the way

your hands trace

and loosen the lace

that hems me in


a flat land has no spin

yet i abide in the septum

of my heart-twin

infusion and coax

of combustion

as you drench me

with love-soft synergy


my love, come to me

in lunar time

amidst the rhyme

of lines that quoin eternity

in this ecstatic quivering

of my internal sea
