I'm tangled in webs of missleep.
How many words jangle like keys
and coins in old pockets of memory?
How many touches taste turned, tainted
in the blister of midnight to three?
How many phone calls breaking streams
leave us deposited on the moon?

I'm looking out the window
at you
now.

You sit,
a satisfied coin,
a glowing silver key,
a ring against the sky.

I want to take you in,
shelter you in black felt,
cry against the knowledge
of your keeping.

The pillow offers no comfort.
The sheets no satisfaction.
I want to walk you to the sea.
I want to wade home through our image.

Fragments of light breaking and bursting
with each step.

I'd go ahead..
but usually slow motion
and backwards
seems to make me rest easier.

Starting the alphabet with Z,
Y, and so on..
slowly trying to remember the
complete opposite of what
you've been taught..

But cupping your hand over your ear,
and hearing the ocean..

that's a wonderful thing... it's inside of you.

You must promise
to watch for the breakers,
how they slide
as though escaping

some black seascape
further out.
You must promise
to watch the moon.

She bleeds her light
upon the water,
the edge of the coast,
the end to the stars.

If I only knew
the letters
to form, unplanned,
in my mouth.

Again,
like becoming
the sky
and
the stars being
the reflection
of yourself
on the water.

*tiptoes quietly out*

If at first you don't succeed destroy all the evidence that you tried.

A wavering face
that presses chances
and changes the sky
to quicksilver tar.

As if in mirror
all things
collide to the
other side.
Your left,
is your right.
All fingers jolt to point,
and musical notes
become mathmatic,
like the depth of shadow..
the depth of your sea..
The color is inflicting,
as yellows become grey.

And what music is this.
Breaking spume upon the rocks,
wet-slicked back diamonds
burning below the crystal ceiling,
to the floor of the sea.

What measures written respond
to the flux and distilled ebb
of this night? What words
could I say --

to make you stay?

To inhale those whispers,
share your sky.
Scratching initials in the clouds,
...the unspoken,
are magnetic.
Remembered
in a pile of forget.

Ah, but we must go.
We must melt along the line,
as ribbons of surf
jettison to the shore.

Caressing shells
with forgotten hands.
Remember now their shapes,
their spaces.

We must go.

Aw, thanks. It wouldn't have happened without your input. So thanks for surreptiously dueting with me.
