The bespoke cloak of your majesty’s

Extraterrestrial radiance

Bathes my hemmed lids in lush

Pools of splendor

That deep-end our kiss:

I dive down, within.


Bewitching minstrel,

Were my heart a soaked scabbard,

Swimming in your same-mind’s

Desirous soul, daggered murmurs

Would leak through drains and I would

Plunge my aching essence therein to covet the gaze

Of your incandescent glory.


As worship, I rise to breach the surface;

Pray in spirit–lift my hips high in adulation, undulating devotion,

Retaining flashforwards of outsourced images–

Iris, pupil, cornea, lens,

Retina, optic nerve engaged

In a copective orgy

Even as they cooperate

To witness the sentimental glow of moodlamp

Madame Moon cast when at last I had grown

Fully sane beneath her gentling;

Selenotropic; out-blissed.


Scopophilic I may claim to be, but I dare any

Of the commonly-afflicted to defy

The scour of unseldom piercing sting–

Ever sweeter than it seems.


For what is love,

But to long, and look above,

If not greater than a dream?
