    she and I
    our glances playing tag
    across the club
    hiding behind strobe lights
    cutting the spew of the
    smoke machine and bouncing
    off of the dis co globe
    'til they reach a rhythmic
    exstasy imagining what's
    at the core of each other's
    retinal transmissions /
    she and eye held each
    o ther over the edge of
    our I lids allowing our
    visual bodies to be lashed

    the song is over and eye,
    beaten into her thoughts
    lay at the mercy of the creations
    her right side has developed
    under blaklight / she whispered
    me my new nom de plume /

    "The Obsidian Epiphany"

    and hung me on my mind
    next to a picture of an African
    angel that existed before
    our encounter / she called it
    her name "Ebonese" /
    and after further glancing/
    farther glancing deep into
    her mocha mosaic windows

    I saw her hovering /
    wings and all
    and in her hand
    there
    eye
    was

    reborn.

    To say that you were quite taken doesn't quite cover it. Sometimes chance encounters can be magical and meant to be. Beautiful.
