2020-09-11 – Last Slow Dance

first kissed at closing
dance of dead

nervous tips brushing
hips formed of
Eden’s clay,

two slow dancers scale a
sweaty wall, brick by brick
then kick through the
roof’s grey.

to climb up and into
mist spreading
over dark


for that head full
of helium,

a pure breath of

grateful for the asylum..
deeper spaces may
grant us..


do take my hand,
it’s a daunting
1st step,

so just cling like old
to the straps of
my straight

..in hopes we catch a blue comet

*poem is the expanded version of its starker self..
i swear it called me back to
the shelf

and not the other
way around

Crazy Clouder
