My love, who rides the black flanks of the night on steel wings.
My love, whose sex is an inkwell, whose eyes are caged birds.
My love, who yawns above cities feathered with soot, and over jungles deadly as an arsenal.
My love, whose laugh is a peony walking a tightrope.
My love, who spins a radar net across the sky.
My love, whose hands are the fringed undulation of a hawk tilting calmly where only predators float.
My love, who sharpens the day on the carborundum of his fear,
My love, whose palms are roadmaps, whose lips are a dragonfly,
My love, who slays the wolves of inertia.
