Time Over Time

if i folded in
to beg you for my
time over

would i remain to brush
this finger’s tip forever thru
lushest trails o’ frozen
clover?

might i bend to stroke or
blow my glow at her leaves?
or leave them to the bees
flickin’ wings against
my dimpled
knees?

and if i gave up only foot
on leg for a lifetime
to sip again

would i still manage to drag my
toe-tips across the same
coals over, and over

ever to same
end?
