Poem 136

got some lifechanging news! for my love:

I taste your promise in my mouth
It’s sugar sweet and red with heat
and I’ve known it, I’ve made contracts too
and broken them, but not with you–
I’m drunk on planning future schemes
that suck up clouds and spit out dreams.
and if you kneel I’ll stand you up
to dance the steps our lives corrupt,
but not just now, we’ll keep with care:
Linger lovely in this here and there.
