    Joy as Woman

    I hold her hand and vanish

    I kiss her mouth and my tongue goes still

    This is where I find rest today

    When too afraid

    And too tired

    Have broken their hold on my feet

    I breathe


    And long

    And loud

    Like three years of lost come home to me

    And she soft

    And glows like summer

    And smells like sun and all the time in the world

    She smiles like it’s hers, and not borrowed

    Laughs like her belly be full of bliss

    Or light

    Or both

    And I hold her hand on this ledge

    And I kiss her mouth with this tongue

    And we step off into nowhere

    Just for a minute

    Just to catch my breath
