Compass Love (Poem)

Stranded in a certain smile

shipwrecked on her laugh

gasping for air–

it licks past my lips.

Devour every word

she writes with her hips.


Daunting is the storm

falling from her hair.

Lightning flashes forth from eyes

who glisten twice as separate skies

ushering on my new dimension

of thought, raised upon

nervous new intention.


I built a home in her ear

to better understand the things I say.

From there, a road

to my hand

in case she ever gets cold.


Leaf and petal

nestled in nettle

chiming as wind through grass.

Heartbeat mayhem

pulse to vein, then

forge compass from chest-grown brass.
