unexplored

better then
that the tilt
of your hands
and the bent
of your breath
moved not
within the reach
the expanse
of my want

it is more fitting
that the flit
of your fingers
and the scrape
of your lips
marked not
the fervid fit
the ellipse
of our hips

far better
that the heat
of what if
and the fury
of unknowing
set fire to
the span of space
the fragile air
between us

  1. this one is beautiful sarah.
    love the way you open this one:
    better then
    that the tilt
    something in this language really captured me
    and pulled me into your state.
