Listen. Protect solitude
from my own compulsion to fill it
with affectionate others. Do not neglect
Keep fin-kicking toward love away
Slow down. Be not bee
Give and receive love, generous.
Honor silence the rhythms
The spaces between. Honor
Liminal. Read books Write books
Love. Do not get lost in the shells
of things. Dwell in the hot sticky
center. Punctuate my actions
with heartbeat. Be skin. Read
with my skin.
