Desire enchants you to the woods
and has you push through the muck
with the patience of a Lotus.

Come closer.
Search everywhere for your keys.

And then she makes you drive all night, desire,
With no map or insurance.

Come closer.
Pull over and find a pen,

write in blood if you must,
these two words:


And then
You hold her gaze for
the next clue about how to have all of her

and it’s the same clue sounding different every time

Come closer.
