    love burns - prison scars
    we end up needy voices
    can I maintain this face
    too much of one thing --
    i've touched the zone
    past your armored caring,
    halted in a satellite orbit,
    thought of 'immanent demise'.

    love burns - prison scars
    getting you to care
    after I learned how to
    care from you, and took
    the rest of what was
    with me to my grave.
    I am the pauper with the
    flowers he's hugging.

    I can't walk this place,
    my complaint is defiled,
    some of you aren't fooled--
    but I wasn't trying
    to obfuscate the issue--
    skirt it with a flood,
    the stone skips
    between our paths.

    love burns - prison scars -
    meet me face to face
    beyond 'magnified separation'
    at the burning touch
    which consumes all beneath it,
    sway to the tyranny
    beneath what moves,
    wants and hungers, most for
    control of you and what's inside.

    I fade gradually into you,
    same shape. now you are
    madder for the truth of knowing
    no more need be said--
    I remember sunlight sculpted
    your very breath,--
    and though it's cold
    I won't remember how cold
    my fingers are probably
    sad inside my gloves.

    I catch you near to the door
    opening as I watch you
    drinking from the jug of milk.
    I say, close the ice box
    and come sit near me.
    listen to my voice carry.
    it is larger than the houses
    and the hills and definitely
    the horses jumping out there.

    I was wrong again --
    the entire time it was
    something I never understood--
    that I can now,
    it is possible-- I do not check
    where I came in.
    I am not a door man.
    behind the silence
    composed of this hush,
    under fervid skies

    the centuries spin
    clockwise -- counter clockwise?
    I remember who I am...
    trying to figure 'why'.
