Atomic Radii

mirage tendrils

dance on quartz seas

as i dare entropy

to quiver me

for a chamber

of tranquility

presses purposefully

to this breast

where you rest

in calm stead

and the ache i bear

for Love’s sake

is buried there

put this conch cage

to your ear

for you wear my destiny

on your sleeve

as “begin and end”

fade from being
