Alchemy completion

 .

Far enough

to line the bed with

lavender clouds,

pull off the covers

and be entombed.

Fine sleep and soft

tenderness warming limbs,

wetting where it warms,

soon to cool – breathing like

singing, lines smeared into

unified devotion, matching frequencies,

backward, forward leading toward a tower

to leap off of, a bed to stretch on, sink into.

It is holy, mud-caked, drawn curtains torn

from their rod. It is thinking in intonations

and shades, a cascading buzz riveting from

bone to bone – two spliced and joining opposite halves,

a power equal in its mercy. Far enough,

just there, drawing breath on the summit, dissolving

boundaries in sensual elevation, far enough

continuing, collapsing, swallowed

into the pitching current.
