what if this gentle fool you know
reached out a hand placed it just so
upon your cheek
and ran his fingers through your hair

would you lean into his caress
closing your eyes take in a breath
and cup his hand in yours

day after day
this intimate exchange
below the surface is restrained
he holds his breath
and slowly goes insane

down the line

uncomfortable truce
syncopation of desire
and nature's leavings

treading softly is a skill
we need to cultivate
taking cue from context
we don't need to dominate
each other or the natural order
plenty if we share
and live within the framework
deity placed in our care
