Potential

Only potential
can spurn
what it is
that we yearn for

Without the possibility
that parts might engage
there is little to work with

Even a slight wedge
and the trace of a smile
is truly an action,
a clue to beguile

Reading potential
is a delicate skill
to mark one receptive
to things that we thrill for

If you catch a spark in the eye
or a glance of curious assessment,
you will move around unexpected corners

Slowly you'll part her
through words and a graze
you'll dance in the pleasures
that these inventions will stage.
