Mandolyn ...


i want to be there when you crystallize


you'll forget me
when the moon is eating again
chewing what is written;

you'll let yourself fall back,
feel what could be heaven
when you hit the net of timelessness

a breeze will comb the sea
out of your boyish curls,
telling them to dance
around the waist of God

your breath will come like Christmas
and you'll wrap yourself
around whatever glows,
no longer cursing the man
you were

no longer expecting me
to change color
