Sliding Glass

shoji glass

I built him a cliff place…
precipitous
with sliding glass
and shoji panels,
and I embrace him there
with songs and incantations
‘gainst wild Pacific rain.
We lie together in down quilts
on cedar floors,
mingle kisses…laughter
and warm breathing,
infuse body fragrance
to sea air…
me…Tuscany rose, fresh linen,
tangerines, new-mown grass
him…bergamot, Moroccan leather
juniper berries…smoke
We two…one space in time,
tide measured by the moon,
and precarious to shatter
in each other’s arms.
