Let Your Love Curve
Where the night curves in stillness,
The body is on night watch
Aroused by all the knocking
Its inner pandemonium.
Is the heart rigged for such acceleration?
And the purpose of sealing its carriage?
To restrain what is otherwise fit for flight
To a torso taut and tired
of housing so much thrust?
Let momentum loosen her then!
Out from tight tissue and protective barracks
Give her the windstorm!
And the open acreage of sky
Abandon the husk! Empty the house.
So the vital organ forgoes friction for freedom
A new arrangement attunes-
It plays and soars abroad
On the still curve of the night
A muscle at large is meter chasing rhyme
No rest and no contraction
Just pure expansion for keeping tempo
with a fugitive song bound to peak and fade
Out here however, along the chords that curve toward morning,
The whining wheels of longing are hushed, whether home or away
Mere composition will let her down again
Dried from unmatched heat and opposing winds.
Freshly distended skin, deflated, will dampen,
Will stir and strengthen - the wet fact of desire
What sort of morning misses devotion?
The miraculous rising from the curve of nighttime,
Where hearts restarted, spiraled up and outward
Once, unaware of the opposing wind
Forget about friction. Let your love curve
