Balancing zero can be a magic number
or pockets turned inside out.
you don't exist when
my eyes are open
you don't exist when
my blood's not poisoned
when my soul's at peace

and when I'm in company

So you exist most of the time

Aphrodite carried me--

my vessel floated in her belly.

growing eyes to see as she sees,

growing a heart to feel as she feels.

life made a permanent vision,

my mother set before me.

as gold in all its precious paleness--

begins and ends by beauty's word

but all that comes about is division

so it can seem for timeless stretches
nothing will turn the tide on your searching

that plateau your fingertips brush
but too far off for resting

the carrot and the stick, you know
in the end that's all it comes down to.

up close and personal
I have you within my heart
-your name on my tongue

I whisper you on hot breath
listen out for your steps
-delight in your success.

the Sea never really let you go
you know this
every time you taste your tears
