X

 

your deer eyes    the night

X pressed his ear to the road
and            you never pushed,
but pulled the day
inside out so it sticks
                             to your face
X is all we'll never know
(X imputed)     but you take
you are The Asteroid
The Nearing Sun           Cancer

"The way she walks down the pebbles,
hands pretend to balance, she stands
for a minute before the sea, then continues
into the cursive ripples. Cold and mortal.
Something I cannot compare," I imagined.

big is only a comparison           this is X
when a question doesn't need answering
anymore      too in love with the mystery

I'm not much of a swimmer    you said
walking from the Autumn-grey water    
   steadier on the stones
skin so taut       your tendons are announced
as hurricanes        the birds fly in
men stare in wonder and I enter knowing
I'll not walk out the other side more than bones
