who i see just
as it turns the corner
my fingers about to touch
that curious hair

unlike the dog’s
unlike mother’s…

remember, when in pain,
I know forgiveness
when afflicted, for example: in the mouth
when gums are throbbing under teeth
or the convulsing overtones of my uterus
these thumps are blood
and prayer

it is okay to die
crescendo nest respite

see god, who quilts dutifully
kicking out patterns
as pinwheels, windmills, tetra helio octagon

who has nothing to do with it
and everything

and thrills me with that epiphanic
flirt, a winking eye appearing
in a large bedroom
making love
to catch another glimpse of you
