Imagine a Care Bear dipped in white phosphorus
Trick-riding tip-toe on a Hindu rhinoceros,
who rolls like a stone and collects rainbow mind-floss,
who shoots down sad-frown thoughts like a Tee-Hee-Free-Shine Boss.
A junkie for eyeballs that squeeze shut upon greeting
pushed up the smile invoked by the meeting
(The meeting, agreed to be delayed and fleeting),
Prelude to the under-hug drum of hearts beating*
*the sound that reminds me
on up- down- and in- sides, he
is part me, but she, and so
perfectly we, see:
She: twists light like a shaman,
His senses: uncommon.
Our joy: drips quick flips, instant, like ramen
instant and sudden: reverse, stop, then flourish.
Meander morphs easily,
Sprint threatens skirmish,
Then spicy sweet heat dissipates to a nourish.
THIS is the marvel: the meander and stay
while at night we conspire with past stars to create
the next play.
The scramble stretch dance,
the pray sway play scrape
Til we find that we’ve grooved our self right through a gate.
(Insert blissed-out AMEN here).
