two words | throbs, love (from Crazy Cock, book dipping)

Such things I would do ~
overcome this shyness in a moment
   show my true trust
there is nothing I would not be
to keep this love, I dip, I dive
a line, straight to you, strong vector.
Do you find your heart throbs ~
does it beg for the slow-relief, double tango
that slow, giddied dance that falls to the cosine
I’ll ride your steady algorithm to such ecstatic states
aware of the quick shutter-flutter of all your all seeing eye
I am utterly undone in so many ways
So it is I give up, give over to this fugue
repeat, a private litany heard only by two – me-you
       your name, name, name
Twice I tried to give you up for Lent
& twice I failed, fell to my knees in not-so-quiet
prayer, I was utterly unrepentant,
lit candles from Notre dame to Sacre Coeur
From Saint Thomas to Saint Xavier’s NYC
a lit path, it led straight to you
      to such holy place.
We make our peace on hallowed ground
Find at last release, a thousand sights indefinable,
once hushed, now I am the dove outside your window,
she who coos just for you.
      I am that one.
