always or never.


Always or never.

I was thistles of charms
I was stems of perennial secrets
Forever June in pearl a casket

All lost hearts rested inside sea caves
Paper dolls hid in flower boxes
My head spun for nothing
Until it turned into milk glass
& sweet sweat summers &
For- hiding- willow trees
(breathe out, you must)

It’s the seahorse in your eyes
The coating of your hands upon mine
The fake champagne too
I sense I am that still
& only just like this, near you
Please stay with me! always
Or never.  

(from my collection Heart Drumming)
