Unravelling and weaving, sometimes simultaneously


How young we were
that both our years
would not equal
the single total
of one of our lives now

We were leggy
as yearlings
smelling fresh mown hay
full of ourselves

Two fillies
nipping and galloping
in springtime meadows
exquisitely poised
on the edge
of awakening

Your eyes
so full and luminous
glowing with mischief
twinkling with dares
deep and brown
with secret desires

At night
I sat between your thighs
listening to you hum
your fingers busy
making plaits in my hair

sometimes trembling
in their hurry
as if it was foreplay

the gentle pull and tug
on my scalp
an indicator of your state
your eagerness

Do you remember?

We hardly slept
as if we had discovered
the secrets of the universe
in the broken hollow
of a mattress
that didn’t allow separation
but rolled us together
time and again
to the middle

pressed together
hearts pounding
like hooves across a verdant field
