We Can Get There


We Can Get There



I want ecstasy

long light of a cathedral

moon seeping through clouds


newly minted penny

rolling through my loose fingers

while you nap nearby


boat breaking water

foamy wake splashes

sun slathered on skin


your lips moist on mine

in this blue hour of need

headed down a path


bordered by lupine, wheat

what we most desire

fences that no longer fence
