For Some ‘Lovers,’ in ‘Love.’ Oh and She Likes SunflowersPosted: August 12, 2011
Sunflowers seem to love to crack–
they are doing it constantly,
and here on Earth
just a tiny morning gasp of life at last.
The morning is when they’re at their highest,
eager and hungry from the cold
and dark and creening desperately,
as we do, weakly
tangling limbs beneath the white kiss
of the sheets
your hips rise in prayer
and my eyes closed
I see it all clear.
