Two Lines Meet

By Sageanne Senneff

 

triangular patterns form on your hands

kaleidoscoping

under the light from the window

 

another tock sounds from the wall

draped in dust

 

sun breaks through the glass

harmonising with the thoughts on our pillows

 

rolling back and forth like shifting currents

with no one spot to rest

 

a smile lifts the dimples in your cheeks

and the stars stop in your eyes to glisten

 

your body plays a charming melody

and it’s too easy to listen

 

you hold the sun across your chest

as it opens wide to welcome me

 

oh, what a forgetful thing I am

you are a dangerous thing for me
