your shape in the dark /
a swan’s neck craning
about the moon / O love
your voice / a whisper in
an empty room / a finger
on the spine / delicate
as if to cut / catch in
the throat / chamber
loaded and private /
in my head it is so
plush / so quiet but
for the soft bloom /
of your chest’s rise
and fall / waves on
flesh / ripples of a
calendar / an unread
journal / filled with
visionary poets who
do not matter now /
now my body is but a
conduit for your body /
the gap between each
finger / coloured in
with yours / quiet /
quiet / listen now /
come in closer /
do you hear the little
drummer boy / who
bangs his drum at all
hours of the night /
walking in circles upon
circles in my chest /
he is the pride of
my life / my life as
a marching band /
jubilee / a parade
in your honour /
forming your face
on the endless green
