dark planet

you might not

know at a glance

what i feel

as intuitive as you are

something about me

resists easy interpretation

i, a dark planet

teeming with potent life

just beyond your range

but not in your orbit

the air is thick there

heady, a glass of wine

atop a mountain

but visit

explore

through my eyes

lies a promise

of adventure

and you open

yourself

to the

calm animal

certainty

that i 

understand

without judgement

that here

you can 

be 

someone else

yourself

without

mother’s admonitions

that you can coil

around me

as i fuck

light

into you

pressed and tested

without explanation

the decisions

given to my

safekeeping

and here

naked

damp and glowing

you are the eve

of this new world

where everything looks

the same 

but it all

feels

new
