remember when 
you told me everything 
with just one eye open 
while the rest of you 
arrested me unexpectedly 
tracing my fingers 
over your blind spot 

and by swan dive time 
all thoughts of insurrection 
are the locked up 
divinity inside me 

and this sacred place 
where I made my bed 
is evening to my head 
and morning to my heart 

I am covered 
in continual stardust 
now always on the edge 
suddenly just realizing  
how long I have been 
wearing this scent 
bearing torches, bent  
all for you 
all for you 
my dear
