Love Released

You and I

earth and sky, song and wine, ink and skin

not a shadow between us, the virgin sand

jealous, trapped between our toes, my heart bigger,

bigger than the sea.

Yours, a planet beyond the frost line

where no one has lived.

Did I hear the waves

when I pressed my ears to the bottle by your bed

or whispers and amorous murmurs

of others, once mirrored in your eyes?

As you leave me to hurt, I think-

If I shatter the bottle, will every shard reflect

my misgivings or like

the circus mirrors show

the distorted avatars in which

I now see myself?

Bottle breaks, mirrors melt

a pool of quicksilver, I drown
