ready – a poem

ready – a poem

[from Misconfigurations of Love – poetry]

let me test theories of tenderness across your toes
and give flight to dalliances within walled and secret spaces
let me pry opening thoughts into your aches
and see if there is available lighting inside
i will stroke and stoke each ember
i will whisper them awake at night
and again at the sunrise
shelter and protect and build to a burning blaze
and collapse alongside
without hurry or chore
blameless and alight and at rest
ready
