    every time I rest my eyes
    I wear myself out / dancing
    an alvin ailey adagio on
    the surface of my corneas
    behind the curtains of my
    eyes / is you / I try not
    to indulge / get caught up /
    in joining the hand of a
    visual whisper but who you
    are in the third dimension
    makes the imagination a (dark)tan
    gible entity so I reach
    until my arms go weak / and
    I seek to feel the sway of
    your hips / that rock as
    if wind touched flowers on
    the countryside waving goodbye /
    and my rest dies...and my body
    cries / sweating past twelve noon
    or half past midnight I move
    I silouhette what you do and
    dance 1-2 1-2 spin/////////
    my mind into a cocoon so I can
    give birth to thoughts with wings
    to fly to you along synapses
    an electrical response to my relapse
    for the touch of you / so let
    me touch you in places that my mind
    uses to unwind and assassinate
    the pain it erases...
