Heavy Breathing

The natural world
Or what we so soulfully
Found ourselves
Embracing of it
Sprawled itself out
On our backs
Against a porch of
Buoyant emotions

The concrete outdoor city
Sun stroked in downtown hovers
Towering over our
Dual natures
The only permanent
Naked reliance for sanity
Between us remains on beds of menthe

Turning every page
In your book I look to find
A noble moon peeking
Through your telescope
Up or down it is always
So proximate
So unassailably radiant

Every burning primeval star
Shot ‘cross a black light neon sky
Alights our mossy beds

Cradled rest our heads
Are both collapsed
Onto a pillow of centuries
With cedar ringing in our ears
As our whispered witness
To countless birds
Chirping echoless disappear
In between unspoken
Human heartaches

Two each our own

You bloom like amaryllis
Lush with red light deep inside me
As the first bewilderments
Of unabashed heavy breathing shakes
Panting sounds between us
Twisting over late night lovers

Clever has absent heard
Even of this
A sound for words
Which there are never
