Verse

Naked wait

It’s too close now

with your horizon burning a hot haze of mirages- just outside my eyes.

It’s too hard now

like Colombo sun on the back of my neck in March

– mathematically perpendicular, straight above a rule’s measure-

like you shining across three-thousand two-hundred eighty-three miles.

The air around is gathering, preparing to vibrate

to ‘Darling, it’s so good to see you again’,

everything – the sea, the sun, the air

ready, in place, waiting as honest as glass…

I shouldn’t jinx it

by moving my heart.
