PRIORITIES - POEM 15. RETURN TO A LOVER


Long ago in tight
bodied bliss
licked the length
of muscled thigh
to long passion tensed toes
brushed with golden hair
Up to eyes
blazing blue fire
in the soft turquoise air

Years melted in distanced longing
until this postponed later day

Finally - flying
home
held in soft parchment skin
tongue tracing legs gone thin
and tracked with geographic navy
from thigh to curled arthritic toes
stringed with white wild hair
Up to eyes glowing pale cataract blue
banked fire blazing
in the soft turquoise air
