Two Lines Meet

By Sageanne Senneff


triangular patterns form on your hands


under the light from the window


another tock sounds from the wall

draped in dust


sun breaks through the glass

harmonising with the thoughts on our pillows


rolling back and forth like shifting currents

with no one spot to rest


a smile lifts the dimples in your cheeks

and the stars stop in your eyes to glisten


your body plays a charming melody

and it’s too easy to listen


you hold the sun across your chest

as it opens wide to welcome me


oh, what a forgetful thing I am

you are a dangerous thing for me
