Glimpses of Joy

Through the shapely curves of her bosom I search    
through her transparency into the void where †  
days untouched by choice and happenstance † †  
once met me with slow anticipation. Her † †  
midriff, as a beach, slides and shifts † †
imperceptible waves, slowly, but † †  
certainly faster than before. † †  
She cares not how I feel † †  
future or past, for her † †  
task is to meet me † †  
today at her † †  
navel † †  
and let pass † †  
my love, my loss, † †  
and occasional joy: † †  
shimmering crystals in † †  
in an ocean of brown sand. † †  
Days forever indistinguishable, † †  
forgettable, lost in mundane rote † †  
drawing breath but unliving; unwilling † †  
observer of celestial danse-macabre. Yet † †  
iridescent stones bespeckle her legs, call to † †  
me with dread longing for me to hold, feel and † †  
experience them once more. If only in mindís eye.
