You On A Continent Climbed..... - Poem by Marshall Gass

you on a continent climbed
into the hollow of a sacred tree.
on an island climbed into your continent of symbols
together we found the Black Eagle
and apple juicies
clock towers striking 5.10pm
roads leading out of ice box cages
into the wild yonder where
meteors lit the sky with meaning
and shooting stars sprinkled
stardust on our words

I offered you that kiss
and cuddled you back!

There was nothing else I could do
when trapped in destiny,
but sync with your heartbeat
and write you 57 poems
explaining the meaning of love
and oceans of distance.

Even as time ticks
we will crawl into a tepee
and cherish these moments
of separation.
