Myth

We interlace
                       our spectral
        intensities,
                 an arousal
                  
of tender
                        cravings
        converging
                   into our
 
oneness.
                        A mystifying
        anomaly to
                   those not
                   
so favored by
                        love’s fluency.
        Yet I wonder
                    of your
 
origins—Why
                              is it me you
        choose?
                    Are you
 
estranged
                          from an
        unspoken life
                   that might

wrest you
                           away from me?
         I temper
                        my distrust
 
of your
                                  ecstasy,
           and again
                          I awaken.
 
Escaping
                                   the myth of
           my deep
                          sleep fantasy.
