LOVE

Poetry

Body

The house

of an object.

 

Its husk

or shell.

 

The dwelling,

the residence,

 

demarcation

lines.

 

The bottom

of forest’s

 

floor and

tops of

 

trees.

An enclosure

 

or a box,

a cell,

 

a vessel.

And then:

 

the bright

open

 

windows

where

 

the light

of life

 

escapes.

That quick

 

spark of something

the threshold

 

point

that keeps

 

 

us one

and whole

 

a shelter

from where

 

we’ll

go.
