Some conversations
have been intense:
what we desire, hope;
then there are the ones
that are more common
but no less anticipatory:
what time will you arrive?
The mechanical arrangements
holding a full unspoken set
of what the time we have together
will contain (trembling and authority);
the negotiation that can’t be done
by text or even phone,
that requires intimate voice and touch,
opening a door to a long-viewed panorama
a landscape of submission
always known but never walked,
where we are becoming
our inevitable true selves.
