To leap

I kiss air

Into your lungs,

So you might know

Belly laughter,

The sacred obscene,

Wild and free,

Open, soft and full,

This lexical universe,

Offers heat,

Enough to dry your tears,

With the quiet, leaping

Ease that lesser men

Must learn,





Some part of you

Seeks my care

And direction,

So leap as high

As you need to,

I will catch you,

Keep you safe.
