rough and ready (29 August 2007)

7 Aug

never did we melt and
glide as if finitely
polished gems might

in a preoccupation of
loving whispers, forgetting
to hold form and

so puddling loose
energy into a short
space of intimacy

(the loss exhausted
into a universe that has
so much already)

instead we grind
about with enough light
and heat to roughen

hidden and delicate
(forgotten and assumed)
spaces long settled in the mind

as personality, ha! it’s just
another layer to shed
crystalline beauty

roughened and ready, we are
night travellers turning
and finding our eastern light
