When the moon calls you to join her in her arms
The trembling of a leaf ecstatic with calm:
throughout the day my desire follows
your existence, foreign to rule,
your indwelling rebellion
giving voice to my words.
When you love someone
Always tell them
Have no regrets
She walked out the door
screen door slamming shut.
She threw me a wave
and a smile, lips taught.
Another argument, over???
What was it really?
I need time to recover.
In the pale dawn light
here I lie
Your body has
a completeness, a softness
meant for me.
The push of a button
Fear hangs over Hawaii
Don’t leave me, not even for a day, because —
because — I don’t know how to say it: a day is long
and I, I’ll be waiting for you, like at the station
when the trains are parked somewhere else, asleep.
I do not love you yet because I do love you
I waver between loving and not loving you,
Between waiting and not waiting for you.
My heart swings between hot and cold.
