Night Stanzas

Discovery

by Martin Durkin

Togetherness

i like that smirk of yours
house coat - off
holding
a red pEpPeR at
heart level

you

provide the ingredients
i'll
prepare the meal

two of us both conscious of time


words curling under, picking up speed

waterfall
of wet words
falling
in rush
between your
shoulder
blades
down your
spine,
splashing off
the tailbone
of smooth
pebbled skin
hitting
the open air
in a swirl
at the mouth
of
an open cliff,
cascading
down
after flying forth
in
white-capped-rush
grabbing,
at everything it
can
and, like me
wishing
to
return to
the
top of your
shoulders
at the nape of
your
hairline

the shape of her heart under his ear - home

to lay in her
warm
bosom,
sleep

a wild animal

skin not
silk
not cream
or
warm wet sand

vanilla - coffee

pinkie finger
down her small back
dipping - arched
loins sitting on
hamstring
ready

for the slow jazz dance
