Eye Contact

Dark coils
Walking upside down
Maybe backwards up a ladder
Twisting as if
Springs beneath our backs
Regaling memories that
Had not fallen like the
Stars without the moon
Beating out the
Bleeding night
From the start
Remembering you

Your eyes glowing
Above me in the loft
Your teeth were gleaming too
That unforgettable smile
Is the fantasy
An apparition
Of reality

There’s no erasing
The feeling of your hands
From me
There’s no retracing
Our steps
Back to imaginary lands

Eye contact
Is somehow different
With you
