Mosiacs at Twilight
 

She blinks away the day, loosens 
the knot on her robe. Later that night, 
     maraschinos in Manhattans
black dress and black tie at La Bohème 

but for now she takes him in whole, 
stretched on the bed. Shadows grow 
long       cast nets of amethyst 
over the room    a twist of dusk 

makes the familiar exotic. As she nears 
-  he fragments  -  becomes a shoulder 
       a hand          She sees 
the man he was, one never met, 
 

perched on a stool     aura of smoke 
and whiskey     the casual drape 
of arm over the waist of his guitar.
He sings to her alone, in the midst 

of the bar crowd, begins the amber 
melt of her insides. He is an ear
     an eye     tuned only to her. 
Approaching on a city sidewalk, 

collar turned to the wind, 
                    he breathes beat poets 
down her spine. She becomes 
a fold     a crease     a subtle change 

of contour as legs and arms open 
wide, at ease in her vulnerability. 
They hide beneath daisies and tall
grasses     love young and long.

She in her black dress
                           he in his black tie
insulated in arias, they drift
        a single mind     a molecule.
