night space

night space
            for Keikei

I.
rain hard
on the van roof
your fingers
your teeth
on my skin

II.
i listened
to your
breathing
heard the
river of breath
winding into
winding out
of you
that keeps
you living
in this
world
the river
of warmth
i cross
to
your
lips.

III.
your cheek
rivals any
cast of moon
ever.
your lashes
a stand of
poplars on
the ridge
of a hill
that could
simply
open
and

swallow
me

sleep
love
sleep
under
your coverlet
of mystery

your skin
turns streetlight
to moonlight
to heart light
dimmed
and
warm

sleep
love
sleep
we are
of this
place
nothing
will ever
take us
from this
space this
night
space

breathing like
sea horses
in warmish
currents
below
