Love, Fervently

for DAJ

f fingers, the symmetrical, smoothened
underside of warm hands

where silence is writ “waxen mummies”,


we sweeten the derma with honey, honey to seal a darkness,
that of arroyo, in bathed bronze-- two statuesque apparitions,

rich-warm with salted kiss-es, ebbed

to outlive fossilized bracken
& manganese
love, fervently--

spectral & polarized
upon a pyre borne of lust

& crystalline fires

(an enduring zenith;
memory interpreted in the ghostly shadows

of an eye--ich bin sie, sie bin ich)

in reflection, we be
