I adore you With your forward brow, Eyes of nightshade and black treacle. Your image floats and unfurls in the ****** spaces Between marks posed in gazette. You stare back at me knowingly, Cunningly, As though watching the course of my life unfold. You have stretched your hand through time To let it fall in a cold gust across these pages, Betwixt the folds of my cerebrum, Your spectral lips prompting faintly In the nook behind my ear. -O goddess, O muse!- O fellow soul… You have found me.
